Captured through the lens of Highsnobiety, this three-part series entitled ‘The High Road‘ will chronicle a journey in McLaren’s supercars through Britain, Singapore, and Las Vegas, and bring to life three unique stories with unexpected talent and eye-catching visuals.
NEW YORK, July 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, international travel and lifestyle brand TUMI debuted The High Road, a content series created in partnership with Highsnobiety, which will highlight the brand’s ongoing collaboration with elite motorsports team and luxury supercar maker McLaren. The three-part series will document a journey against the backdrop of three vastly different cultures and continents through video and still content, featuring the British, Singapore, and Las Vegas Formula 1 Grand Prix races and showcasing TUMI | McLaren product. Each location will engage a cultural tastemaker to get behind the wheel of a GT supercar or McLaren Artura, the company’s latest lightweight hybrid supercar, passing by unique landscapes and spotlighting local landmarks on their way to the races while engaging the community along the way. The High Road will also gain access to the McLaren F1 teams’ garage and paddock area, giving viewers an exclusive look beyond the track.
Produced by Highsnobiety with video direction from Autre Fish, the docu-style videos will showcase the brand’s technicality and craft with fresh, beautiful content. The series will highlight the ways global tastemakers bring pieces from the TUMI | McLaren 60th Anniversary and core collections along for the ride as they join TUMI on the journey.
The series officially launched today closely following the British Grand Prix race week, with the second and third installments rolling out in line with the Singapore Grand Prix on October 18th and the Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 20th. At Silverstone, Melvin Israel, a fashion photographer, documented his individual journey through the UK with a custom, product-forward postcard book. In Singapore, talent will explore the city-state and enmesh the series in local culture leading up to the Grand Prix. In Vegas, talent will go on a scenic road trip that captures the diversity of the American Southwest and highlights the best of the Saturday night street race.
“This opportunity represents the ultimate partnership, leveraging the driving force of TUMI, Highsnobiety and McLaren, told through a fresh new lens. At TUMI, we’re committed to innovation, excellence and perfecting individual journeys. The partnership with Highsnobiety brings a new, innovative approach to storytelling.” said Jill Krizelman, SVP Global Marketing and E-Commerce, TUMI.
“We are proud to unveil our partnership with TUMI | McLaren, merging their commitment to cutting-edge design and craftsmanship with the apex of what’s next to create a content series that values our mutual commitment to the travel and luxury automotive worlds,” says Haein Dorin, US VP & General Manager at Highsnobiety. “The series taps Highsnobiety’s always forward-looking cultural perspective to shine a spotlight on the TUMI | McLaren collection around the world.”
