Field Pack

Field Pack-1-Design Crush

 

I just returned home from a few days at NY NOW where I got to scope out all things new as well as catchup with some old favorites. One that stuck out were my pals at Yield Design Co., in particular their brand new Field Pack. An evolution of the Field Bag, the Field Pack has one main compartment with a small interior pouch and two exterior side pockets. This water-resistant duck canvas, copper hardware and vegetable tanned leather bag is modern lines at their best. (But really, check out their entire line of bags because whoa.)

Tiff Manuell

Tiff Mannuell-1-Design Crush

 

We’ve all heard the reference that fashion is art, but what about when it actually is? Meet Tiff Manuell, a designer and artist from Adelaide, Australia. She creates a range of hand-painted accessories, each one completely unique thanks to her process. Tiff works by first painting canvases with bright colors and patterns, then cutting that canvas up and placing it inside a PVC outer shell before sewing and adding trim. Bags of all sizes and purpose, statement neckpieces, collars, and cuffs are all created in the same manner.

Because I tend to dress in mostly neutrals, Tiff’s pieces have been an amazing dose of pattern and color for summer. Inside each bag she takes the time to stitch in a one-of-a-kind logo, just one last special touch that makes every piece feel just for you.

Tiff also creates these dramatic statement necklaces from cut strips of painted canvas that are real showstoppers, color and pattern galore. I’ve been hanging mine on the wall as art when I’m not busy wearing it, and I always get so many compliments when paired with a plain tee or tank.

Long story short – I’ve got a crush, and it’s a big one.
