Moonlight & Camel October 17 2017
Working on contemporary shapes and fabrics is a rooted part of our DNA, something we have been doing continuously for the past ten years. We've always taken pride in introducing new and technical fabrics every season, and once in a while you come across a fabric with such obvious qualities that just keeping it as a seasonal flavour doesn't do it justice. And so we keep coming back to our double-bonded, lightweight nylon. With the moonlight blue color now taking a permanent position within the Expression collection, the AW17 season marks the introduction of a new colourway in this magnificent nylon fabric - camel!
With a sporty-casual look, the material refreshes the look of some of our classic styles, while setting the direction for a new range of more sporty, on-the-go silhouettes. Compared to the ballistic nylon, the fluffy nylon is much lighter (373 gr. pr. running meter vs. 862 for the ballistic nylon), but still provides a strong hold because of its double-bonded composition. Considering its lightweight nature, it often gives the bags a very sculptural form - a feature only enhanced by the multiple reflection of light this nylon provides. Much like we know from expressionistic sculptures, where the use of colour and form often would challenge the perception known from the traditional perspective.
A colour with a bit more flavour than our moonlight-blue staple. The camel colour with its golden shades of brown and green offers a fashionable and sporty interpretation of the earthy tones which characterise the AW17 collection. The thin, laminated nylon with foam padding in between provides a curved surface and ultralight composition, making these bags easy to carry around all day. The fabric beautifully accompanies the more soft-toned yet sporty products of the collection with signature black bridle leather and gunmetal hardware serving as detailing throughout.
The moonlight blue colorway subtly frames the darker shades of oceanic navies, juxtaposed by our clean-cut black bridle leather and gun-metal accessories. This fabric gives way to a sporty and flexible feel. A thin laminated layered nylon, with foam padding, gives this smooth fabric a curved surface and ultra-light composition, making it easy to carry around all day. The fabric can withstand some rain but not downpour, however it dries up extremely fast. The choice of this particular nylon confidently assures the bags’ durability.
