TUMI just announced the launch of its 19 Degree aluminum luggage collection. Drawing inspiration from the intersection of nature and exacting lines in architecture, 19 Degree boasts a modern and cutting-edge design with sculpted angles set against aluminum for a sense of fluidity.

The collection features a reinforced frame-case design- with two snap closures for carry-on bags and three snap closures for check-in bags- and die-cast corner caps for additional protection. The interior is handsome and features a lightweight lining with an embossed diamond pattern in a full range of carry-on and check-in sizes, from an International Carry-On through to an Extended Trip Packing Case.

All styles will feature integrated low-profile TSA locks, TUMI Tracer®, retractable moulded top and side carry handles wrapped with leather, and a patented X-Brace 45® telescoping handle system made from lightweight-yet sturdy aircraft-grade aluminum, which contributes to the reduced weight of the bags. The four dual-spinning recessed wheels are engineered to offer excellent manoeuvrability and provide greater packing capacity inside.

These styles, offered in Silver and Matte Black, will retail for £855-£925 alongside a polycarbonate counterpart collection retailing from £485-£550; all available at TUMI retail and specialty stores and TUMI.com in Silver, Black, and Copper.
