I Know What We’re Rocking This Summer: Tumi Traverso Coronado

by Daniel Haim

Regardless if the weather man says it’s going to be cold outside, the sun is shinning in New York City and that’s all that matters. And with this morning’s announcement I know exactly what I’ll be rocking this entire summer, you guessed it. The new TUMI Traverso Collection. Not to mention it’s Tumi’s first eyewear line and it’s absolutely hot. It’s safe to say TUMI is making big moves, which we support.

All of the sunglasses in the collection are engineered for performance, fit and function, employing the latest technology and materials. Renowned lens manufacturer Carl Zeiss developed an exclusive Tumi ZR3™ CR-39 Polarized lens that offers superior optical and visual performance while delivering outstanding polarizing efficiency. Tumi ZR3™ is an exclusive, transparent lens coating created by Zeiss that allows dirt, water, oil and dust to slip off the surface of the lens, reinforcing Tumi’s commitment to infusing the highest level of quality into all of its products.

Traverso frames are constructed for strength and flexibility, using beta titanium, featherweight aluminum, handmade acetate and non-corrosive stainless steel. Hand-wrapped leather treatments, special acid- and laser- etching techniques, and unique injected rubber temple tips all evoke classic Tumi style.

The Collection will launch spring 2011 and be available in all Tumi stores worldwide. Prices range from $265 to $325.
