Art of Tote


Langley Fox, known for her illustrations, artwork, and fashion design, has partnered with TUMI, the leading brand of premium travel, business and lifestyle accessories on a one-off collaboration for their Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

The ‘Langley Tote’ was designed for the “next generation of TUMI users for the girl on the go who’s not overly polished but ambitiously chic in her daily travels”, says TUMI Creative Director, Michael Petry. The image captured on the tote was inspired by a bohemian, wanderlust spirit; Langley’s illustrated muse is drawn from photographs she’s gathered from her travels and friends over the years. The East/West tote is an updated silhouette for the brand and features dual top handles with an attached interior removable pouch featuring a passport-type concept (Fox’s idea). A small, leather dangler to hold a pen for filling out traveller information is a clever design addition that is also removable.

Surrounding the launch of the new collaboration, TUMI enlisted Fox as part of its 2016 Global Citizen campaign. Whether she’s drawing at her kitchen table in LA or walking the runways in Paris, she epitomises the modern-day globetrotter who’s always eager to explore a new city. Langley kicks off the Global Citizen campaign this month with the premiere video of her pit stop in New York City’s Chinatown.
