Campaign Spotlight: Tumi highlights the inspiring journeys of Son Heung-min, Gracie Abrams, Anthony Ramos, and Lando Norris

HONG KONG — International travel and lifestyle brand TUMI has launched its global campaign entitled “Built for the Journey,” which chronicles the personal and professional journeys of four world-renowned sports and entertainment professionals aptly known as the TUMI Crew.

Brought to life by esteemed film director Jessy Moussallem, who traveled across the globe to bring their unique stories to life, the campaign will include short films featuring pro footballer Son Heung-min, singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams, actor and recording artist Anthony Ramos, and McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris.

Curated by their multifaceted passions and their drive to be on the move, the Crew showcases the 19 Degree Aluminum, TEGRA-LITE, and McLaren collections, respectively through each campaign chapter.


“At TUMI, our goal is to ensure that each person can perform their very best when using our products — whether that’s traveling abroad on tour, going back home, or embarking on a new professional adventure,” said Victor Sanz, Creative Director of TUMI. “We use specialized design techniques and innovative materials to create modern products that offer the best in travel, resiliency, sustainability, and durability. Our products withstand the test of time.”

The first story stars South Korean footballer Son Heung-min, whose journey is about perfecting his craft through repetition and demonstrating what it takes to achieve professional success. Throughout his travels, Heung-min relies on his TUMI 19 Degree Aluminum hardside cases to protect his prized possessions.

The remaining three docu-campaigns will debut throughout September and October. Gracie Abrams’ film, launching September 15, will highlight her first international tour and feature her journey to Paris with her durable and sustainable TEGRA-LITE luggage, built for her busy life on the road. This campaign was inspired by her song, “For Real This Time.”

Anthony Ramos’ narrative, also launching on September 15, will highlight his journey of self-discovery to Puerto Rico and the special connection he felt to the island and his heritage. “Visiting Puerto Rico has been an experience that’s allowed me to explore my roots and connect to the place my family is from in a deeper way. TUMI’s TEGRA-LITE made this trip more exceptional since I securely packed meaningful mementos from La isla to always remind me of the homeland,” Ramos said. He recorded a song inspired by his trip with TUMI, titled “Maleta” which means bag in Spanish.
