This winter, TUMI, the international travel and lifestyle brand, will launch its global campaign entitled “TUMI x MLAREN,” which chronicles the personal and professional journeys of four world-renowned sports and entertainment professionals aptly known as the TUMI Crew.
Brought to life by esteemed film director Jessy Moussallem, who traveled across the globe to bring their unique stories to life, the campaign will include short films featuring pro footballer Son Heung-min, singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams, actor and recording artist Anthony Ramos, and McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris. Curated by their multifaceted passions and their drive to be on the move, the Crew showcases the 19 Degree Aluminum, TEGRA-LITE, and McLaren collections, respectively through each campaign chapter.
Victor Sanz, Creative Director of TUMI said, “At TUMI, our goal is to ensure that each person can perform their very best when using our products — whether that’s traveling abroad on tour, going back home, or embarking on a new professional adventure. We use specialized design techniques and innovative materials to create modern products that offer the best in travel, resiliency, sustainability, and durability. Our products withstand the test of time.”
The first story stars South Korean footballer Son Heung-min, whose journey is about perfecting his craft through repetition and demonstrating what it takes to achieve professional success. Throughout his travels, Heung-min relies on his TUMI 19 Degree Aluminum hard side cases to protect his prized possessions.
“Visiting Puerto Rico has been an experience that’s allowed me to explore my roots and connect to the place my family is from in a deeper way. TUMI’s TEGRA-LITE made this trip more exceptional since I securely packed meaningful mementos from La isla to always remind me of the homeland. He recorded a song inspired by his trip with TUMI, titled “Maleta” which means bag in Spanish,” Ramos said.
The final installment will spotlight the newest TUMI | McLaren Carbon Fiber CFX collection with McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris, who shared his vision for the future. Captured outside London, his story complements the TUMI | McLaren collection, which is built on innovation, technology, and design.
“This campaign celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit and embarking on new adventures which is core to TUMI’s DNA. TUMI is committed to perfecting the journey; it’s how we are built,” Jill Krizelman, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and E-Commerce at TUMI stated.
