DROR for TUMI 2012 Spring Summer 2012

Famous contemporary luggage brand Tumi has launched its new innovative collaboration with Dror. A revolutionary concept luggage in the series known as an Expanding Suitcase, which features a two-stage expansion via a “living hinge”. The luggage would be expandable to  four different sizes allowing the traveller to expand the luggage whenever necessary for more luggage volume. The luggage has an adjustable depth from 9 inches to 14 inches which would effectively increase its overall capacity by 45%.

What really appeals to me would be that the clean geometric lines that form the durable hard cover casing which protects your precious belongings which would be travelling lifestyle where I would check in laptop and camera devices. Traveling light and compact when arriving a holiday destination is of paramount importance to me. as I would need my luggage to expand effortlessly in order to accommodate future tax free shopping purchases for all friends and family!

Dror’s colour selection is impeccable for the business traveller or a holiday jet setter  as it imbues subtle sophistication.I would find myself carrying a DROR bag everywhere to meet my endless shopping requirements and seasonal attire ensembles.
