The high-impact, graffiti-inspired work of urban artist John “Crash” Matos has travelled from subway trains in New York to top galleries around the world. In S/S 2011, Crash has collaborated with Tumi to bring his distinctive artwork to a few cultivated travellers. The Tumi Tag Limited Edition Collection of Travel cases have been restricted to a production of only 1,000 of each of the four cases and i-Phone covers.
Each ‘Vapor’ travel bag will showcase a portion of Crash’s explosive new artwork. The interior of each bag will prominently feature one of four drawings created by the artist and include the unique edition number that authenticates the case as a distinct piece in the exclusive collection.
“Creating art on disparate surfaces and textures has always fascinated me and the ability to design something that is changeable in both form and function is exciting. Through my collaboration with Tumi I was able to tap into a new level of expression reflecting my personal style while retaining the unique, innovative design that is Tumi” – Crash
The Tumi Tag Limited Edition Collection consists of International 2 Wheel Carry-On (£445), Medium Trip (£545), i-Phone Cover (£45) and Extended Trip Packing Case (£595). All available from Harrods.
