Rackage is a look inside recently-opened stores around town. Today, let's journey downtown to Wall Street newcomer Tumi.
Under the guidance of recently-appointed creative director David Chu, a swank Tumi store has opened at 67 Wall Street in the Financial District. Here, you browse for your carry-on bag in style: The 1,100-square-foot boutique features red Murano glass chandeliers, polished ebony fixtures and limestone floors. All that helps the luggage retailer hold its own with nearby luxury brands like Tiffany, Thomas Pink and Hermès.
In keeping with the look of the place, the store sells the crème de la crème of Tumi offerings. There are suitcases, of course, but there are also polished cuff links, leather document cases, sleek money clips and streamlined garment bags—everything the business traveler could ever want or need in the way of luggage.
