LeSportsac and Stella McCartney

img253.jpg

I’m always happy when I see a great collaboration and I really hate when I see a partnership just for the sake of marketing. There’s something lazy & ugly about it. I had a blue LeSportsac in high school and it wasn’t fashionable: just very lightweight & practical with lots of pockets & zippers. I’m still partial to lightweight bags. Most people don’t realize how obsessed fashion stylists really are. I usually have lots of cases for a shoot, so for work I never, ever get to travel light. LeSportsac is collaborating with PETA-friendly designer Stella McCartney and the results are great! I saw the collection at the press day in London. This is the “Editor Bag,” designed for the fashionistas at fashion week. It’s lightweight (of course) and has room for magazines and press releases and there is even a special inside pocket for a can of diet coke! Most of the colours are soft and pretty with the exception of the Evil Bunny Rucksack! Naturally it’s a big seller in !!

I had to take a picture of Elizabeth Kiester, the Chief Creative Director for LeSportsac. She’s just arrived from New York and looks amazing! A true fashionista!

    The bags will be for sale at the end of January/ early February. They’re available at Selfridges, Urban Outfitters, Matches and House of Fraser plus a few boutique shops.
