American travel accessories brand TUMI gets a clever makeover thanks to a cheerful collab with British swimwear brand Orlebar Brown

When two experts in world-class travel essentials combine forces, you'd expect nothing but the very finest combination of style, quality and function. But in this TUMI x Orlebar Brown collection, we also spotted something that is so often missing from travel accessories: a sense of fun. Thanks to the creativity of high-end men's swimwear brand Orlebar Brown, known for its innovative prints, one of the standout bags in this collection has been inspired by the unmistakeable photography of Slim Aarons.

While the sun-drenched vistas of the French Riviera are on show on the Slim Aarons-inspired piece, the rest of the four-piece canvas tote collection caters to those with more minimalist tastes in baggage. With a choice of navy, khaki and printed canvas, each bag features a navy interior, rubber base, leather carry handles, a back slip pocket and a hanging luggage tag that has the option of being monogrammed.

"A large part of travel is about relaxation and enjoying the places you're going. This collaboration is all about the leisure of travel," explains TUMI's Creative Director Victor Sanz. "Sometimes your travels include taking a break from the day-to-day and enjoying it poolside; to us, Orlebar Brown exemplifies that experience and state of mind." Crafted in the quality fabrics and finishes that TUMI is known for, we can see this being the ultimate beach bag for years to come.

And with a campaign video revolving around a sunny seaside weekender with a playfully chic and happily in love couple, after watching this video we can bet you'll be more than ready to book your next mini escape...
