The Tumi Gemini Handbag Collection
The wonderful people over at Tumi were so kind enough to send us a bag to review from their new collection, the Tumi Gemini Flap bag.
Today I checked out the other bags in this collection when I was at the mall, and discovered the assortment of Gemini bags: bucket bags, north/south totes, shoulder bags, and handbags. Available in green, honey brown, black or (my favorite) white. Price range is very reasonable, taking into consideration quality and function.

Tumi Gemini Flap Bag
The bags in the Gemini collection by Tumi are great for everyday, comfortable and their shapes are classic. And this season’s colors are white, brown and bright green. I just got the large Gemini Flap Bag in green and although green bags usually don’t appeal to me, this one does. It is definitely a bag that will only come out of the closet for spring and summer though as it’s brightness doesn’t fit into any fall or winter color trends.
As for the bag itself, I absolutely love the shape and the two cute pockets in the front. there’s even a nice exterior back pocket for quick access to whatever. And the best part is the leather! It’s made from tumbled leather with vachetta trim and I must say that it is extremely soft and supple. What’s also great is the thick shoulder strap as it will take forever to wear. Featured inside are a nylon interior, a zippered pocket with a Tumi leather tag, a cell pocket and a key ring. Also, opening and closing the front flap and small pockets couldn’t be easier. The magnetic closure is so convenient and quick, yet secure as opposed to a buckle closure, which can be annoying to open and close constantly. With that said, the quality of the bag is definitely worth the $445 price tag!
