Form meets function as Tumi rolls out new Merge Collection

By Mary Jane Pittilla


Launching in Spring 2018 is the new Tumi Merge Collection, which seeks to blend form and function.

The collection aims to combine the design DNA of Tumi and a lightweight, relaxed option for the next generation of consumers.

The inspiration for Merge came from Tumi’s design team as they looked to unite the concepts of work-life balance and work-life integration.

This polished and dynamic collection features sleek silhouettes with unique and thoughtful details.
