The May Long Weekend is just around the corner, which means day trips, weekend trip and short flights out of town.
And how’s this for perfect timing: luxury travel and luggage store Tumi opens in Chinook Centre tomorrow, May 15. For those heading out of town this weekend, visit the new Tumi store and search out these five bags so that you can travel in style.
The Must-Have Suitcase
Take flight with the Continental Carry-On ($595), courtesy of Jonathan Adler. Adler, a designer, artist and author, has teamed up with Tumi and the result is playful, geometric and bold luggage. It’s lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, with swivel wheels and retractable carry handles.
The Essential Carry-On Bag
For that quick trip, opt for a lifestyle Tumi Villa Q-Tote ($245). Its light, leather trim makes it a fashionable choice, but it’s also functional: the bag is made from durable PVC material and it has three big pockets to keep you organized while you’re on the road.
The Stylish Weekend Bag
An overnight trip doesn’t have to mean you’re travelling with your chunky bag from high school. Instead, choose the effortlessly stylish Santa Monica Frontera North/South Leather Tote ($645). This tote’s design is inspired by southern Californian lifestyle. Bonus: there’s a pocket specifically for your iPad, another for additional electronics and a pen pocket.
The Undeniably Useful Cosmetic Bags
Whether you need small pouches to hold cosmetics for your trip or whether you’re looking for something to use every day, this three-piece set ($70) is the answer.
The Sophisticated Backpack
This sleek Voyageur Brive Sling Backpack ($215) is perfect for your everyday adventures. It’s lightweight, streamlined and even comes with a decorative tag.
The new Tumi store is a 1200-square-foot, state-of-the-art space complete with an 80″ television screen and a monogramming station. The Chinook Centre location is the third Tumi store in Canada. Chinook Centre, 403-252-1895, tumi.com.
