Jet-setting ladies and gents, take note: The go-to resource for ultradurable luggage has opened its ninth NYC location. Expect to see some new features—this is the first Tumi store to incorporate a travel salon in the back, featuring a wall of travel necessities including the Tegra-Lite line of suitcases ($545–$895), made of an indestructible thermoplastic used in NASCAR race vehicles and NFL protective gear. You can also pick up house-line portable electronics ($25–$695) and eyewear ($125–$295) for both sexes. For those of us who don’t accept traveling as an excuse for being unfashionable, keep an eye out for the 11-piece Dror for Tumi collection ($195–$895), a collaboration with product designer Dror Benshetrit. Leather totes ($495) in both neutral and bright hues serve as chic carry-ons.
