Opening Ceremony have teamed up with renowned luggage label Tumi on a collection of very distinctive pieces of luggage. Read on for the story of how the project was conceived and created.
You can bet we know a thing or two about travel. Between buying trips to Europe four times per year, visits to our Japan and LA stores, international inspiration hunts, and the occasional vacation here and there, we have tested many a travel bag. When CAROL, our CEO and co-founder, began her career after college, she purchased a beloved Tumi carry-on. The bag, which maintains its near perfect condition till this very day, is all about durability, utility, and no frills precision–the essential attributes that make Tumi luggage the perfect complement to our growing Ace shop assortment. When we began thinking about our partnership with Tumi, Carol envisioned her favorite, trusty Tumi bag in a rainbow of colors. Luckily, Tumi was down to let us customize some of their reliable travel bags for our new shop. Check out the final product, three candy-colored, color-blocked travel bags in two colorways, pictured here: the International Expandable Carry-On, T-Pass laptop case (no need to take out your laptop at airport security with this baby!), and the Soft Satchel. Get ’em while you can: Tumi and O.C. are making 100 of each of these limited edition bags, and then they’re gone forever!
