Hari Raya holidays are just around the corner, and if you plan on travelling during this festive season, you’ll want to ensure you have the right bags to help you along your journey. Whether you’re going on a road trip, flying out of town, or just staying at a friend’s place, having the right bags can make your travel experience more comfortable and enjoyable.
Here are some new launches to check out when planning your travels this Hari Raya holidays — whether it’s to balik kampung or simply holiday and take advantage of the long weekend.
For the stylish (and eco-conscious) traveller
Launching today, the Samsonite and New Balance collaboration — Live Undefined — features a bevy of must-haves in some really cute colourways. The series’ small Crossbody Bag and Shoe Box Crossbody Bag are offered in Black and White, but each minimalist case has two reversible coloured bags that reflect the collection’s vibrancy.
The Shoebox Crossbody Bags are not only convenient everyday carryalls, but can also be used as stacking exhibition cases for a sneakerhead’s favourite footwear.
For something larger, the Live Undefined collaboration also includes black and white semi-transparent hard-side luggage. Both the 18-inch and 22-inch pieces include reversible, huge expansion pouches. The latter also features two medium-sized pouches.
The pouches are reversible and come in a wide range of colour combinations, giving travellers the option to dress to impress no matter the setting.
Meanwhile, eco-conscious travellers need to check out Samsonite’s Luggage Trade-In campaign happening until 1 May. Used luggage of any brand, size, or condition can be traded in at any Samsonite store for a 30% discount on the OC2LITE collection and a 40% discount on the ENOW collection.
For the seasoned (and active) traveller
If you’re a practical traveller who appreciates timelessness, then you’ll love Tumi’s newest release. The Voyageur collection for spring 2023 features redesigned bags in traditional silhouettes crafted from trendy nylon materials with a focus on adaptability and improved usefulness.
The Valetta Tote comes in three sizes, while the Adelaide Hobo Crossbody and Loha Slim Hip Bag (both of which are now trending), are also available in lilac, fog, mist, desert red, black, and swallowtail print. Form really does meet function!
New active models include the Kileen Convertible Sling and Malta Duffel/Backpack in addition to the updated Celina Backpack, all of which have convenient additions like a water-resistant lining and straps to handle a yoga mat, so there’s no reason not to maintain those workouts even as you travel.
The collection also features sleek gunmetal hardware, upgraded caviar leather trim, Tumi+ functionality on the exterior and interior of each piece, and a signature monogrammable, detachable leather charm — cute!
It doesn’t end there as the new season collection also includes small pouches for better luggage compartmentalisation and organisation. Just the things that’ll help you keep sane while you pack and unpack (and repack). And you get to do it in ultimate and timeless style.
