TRAVEL accessories brand Tumi recently unveiled its Voyageur collection for autumn and winter, featuring streamlined, lightweight designs with sophisticated and feminine details.
Versatile enough for daily commutes, short getaways and weekend excursions, Voyageur takes on bold prints and a variety of colours including Maroon, Photo Floral, Black, Mink, and Navy, plus a subtle camouflage print in both grey and green.
New embellishments include chains and studding. One line is in luxurious leather, in black and now in seasonal brick red.
Brand manager Mesajee Sirirungruang rolled the great new gear out at a show at Warehouse 30 in Bangkok.
“The Voyageur collection was inspired by the nature and traditions of Scandinavia,” she said. “We’ve focused on techniques such as handcrafting to explore colours, textures and tones.
“The mesmerising results include new takes on camouflage, classic floral motifs being modernised with shifting contrasts, reflective pops and subtle texture plays that add new dimension to Tumi fabrics and styles.”
Celebrities enjoying the show included Onchuma Durongdej, Chulalux Piyasombatkul, Porn- pawee Neerasingh, Ingfah Dam- rongchaitham, Pimpisa Chirathi- vat, Saeranee Charnvirakul, Jukkaphan Wongkanit, Pimthong Washirakom, Ployvarin Songpa- korn, Thanakrit Saengvanich and Praepun Tumwattana.
