TUMI addresses “bleisure” with the launch of its European made TLX collection


TUMI’s answer to the “bleisure” traveler: TLX collection
TUMI announces the launch of its first ever European made TLX collection. 
Responding to an emerging lifestyle trend of fusing business with leisure travel – known as “bleisure” – the TLX collection is aimed at the traveler who is adding on an average of two extra days to their stay. 
According to global travel insight experts SKIFT, bleisure travelers are experiencing sightseeing, arts and cultural activities, tasting local cuisine and, increasingly, bringing family and partners to accompany them. 
Tumi has provided the perfect case that bridges smart and casual, that is not out of place in or outside the boardroom. 
Also reacting to the modern traveler’s desire for lightweight hard-sided luggage, the TLX collection is constructed with multiple polycarbonate layers coupled with a subtle scratch resistant matte coating, guaranteeing a lightweight yet durable product. 
The collection come in three different sizes and in four rich colors to inject a sense of style and versatility for the modern traveler: Matte Black and Navy Blue for summer and Bordeaux and Silver for fall.  
The standout of the collection is the TLX Continental Carry-On, a slim and lightweight cabin bag that is the perfect companion for overnight business travel or weekend leisure trips. Featuring a main compartment that is accessed easily on the go, the case is divided by two zip pockets that provide additional yet streamlined packing. 
The collection also offers a Short Trip and Extended Trip Packing Case for longer periods of travel. 
All three cases have a four-wheel system and a three-stage telescopic handle to ensure control 
in every direction. 
The cases can also be personalised with complimentary monogramming. 
The collection is launching exclusively in Europe in all TUMI stores, including travel retail, as 
well as TUMI.com. Priced from €465-€545.00 (US $529-620)
