Dubbed the Art of Travel, the campaign kicks off with the Academy Award-winning actress, who shares her favorite destinations, her travel style, the most memorable keepsakes from her adventures and what she loves about the luxury luggage brand’s travel essentials.
“One of the things that I find inspiring about traveling is serendipity and getting lost. So many things are pre-planned,” Tomei says in the debut video. “There’s too much of a schedule. You need to be in a place where there’s mystery and you don’t know what’s going to happen, and there is a romance to that.”
On her favorite travel memories, one adventure at the top of her list is a family vacation to Italy. “My aunts and uncles, my cousins, about 20 of us went on a very big trip to Italy. We’d only gone to Northern Italy because that’s my father’s side of the family but we all went, and we all traveled together. … We traveled in a caravan-like style and that really changed our relationships to each other.”
The Spider-Man: No Way Home star continues: Whenever I travel, I try to go to a local flea market. I usually find some really interesting things. When you go to those places, you’re seeing treasure hunters and artist types and also just obsessives about trinkets and things.
The series showcases the travel accessories company’s latest Baseline collection ($75 to $949) of wheeled carry-on and check-in suitcases, duffle bags, cabin bags, backpacks, dopp kits and garment bags, which can now be personalized with monogramming. Features include a one-touch CX expansion system that lets travelers instantly increase their packing space, shock-absorbing wheels, optimized capacity with the aircraft-grade aluminum Outsider handle, extra-wide panels for minimal creasing and more. Smaller carryalls are equipped with dedicated pockets to store a portable power bank for phone and device charging and RFID blocking pockets to protect from potential data theft.
Briggs & Riley CEO Richard Krulik says in a statement: “We are deeply committed to the art of travel in every piece we make and believe a life well-lived is a life well-traveled. We are thrilled to share this dynamic campaign, showcasing authentic and inspiring conversations about travel and life with one of our favorite Academy Award-winning actors, Marisa Tomei.”
