Inspired by the trend-setting modern woman, Zuckerman had long searched for the perfect travel and accessories bag for jewelry collectors, and jumped at the opportunity to dive into the design process with TUMI. With similar design aesthetics and an emphasis on advanced functionality, the match was a natural fit.
“Working with TUMI has been such a dream,” says Zuckerman. “The process was incredibly creative and I’m so proud of the pieces we created together. It was an extremely fun challenge to think about how to incorporate innovative functions in a way that felt effortlessly chic, and that also fit seamlessly into the modern woman’s lifestyle.”

Constructed from super-luxe leather and adorned with a custom black-and-white print painted by Zuckerman, the 4-piece capsule, dreamy and beautiful with an edgy flair, features thoughtfully designed compartments that organize day-to-day essentials, specifically, the tote includes a concealed compartment that keeps valuables secure and hidden from sight for extra assurance. As a partner to the tote, the pouch offers effortless versatility, serving as a clutch, wallet, or cross-body bag, making it the perfect day-to-day or international travel companion.
Throughout the assortment, the designer’s signature dagger is present, offering an edgy, minimalist accent for an added pop. Key elements stay true to TUMI’s DNA, such as the padded computer and phone pockets, key leash and add-a-bag function. The jewelry roll and jewelry box incorporate similar features with compartments and holding space for earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets and watches, closed with leather wrap and branded dagger; both will keep jewelry impeccably organized and safe.
“As travel pieces become more and more of a fashion statement, it’s exciting to continue to introduce very fashion-focused pieces into TUMI’s repertoire,” says TUMI Creative Director, Victor Sanz. “Comfort, style and functionality are important to our customers, but they are also looking to be inspired by the products they wear — I think the collection we created with Eva does a great job of hitting all the essentials our customers look for.“
The TUMI x Eva Fehren capsule collection will be available for purchase exclusively at select national and international TUMI stores and TUMI.com. The designer will also host the collection on EvaFehren.com. The assortment includes a tote with crossbody bag inside, as well as a jewelry roll and jewelry box, ranging from $150 to $895 USD.
