For 2018 Gemline planned to launch a new collection within its in-house brand Heritage Supply. Myself and another designer were charged with choosing materials, colors, hardware, to create a look and feel for the collection. In conjunction with helping to direct the collection's look and feel I designed the sling pack and convertible duffle for what came to be known as the Highline Collection.
The sling's strap has locking plastic hardware to be easily worn over left or right shoulders, and a hidden side release buckle on the strap gives you the option of taking the sling on and off without having to pass the strap over your head, no more knocking your hat off or messing up that perfect hair day when carrying this sling bag.
With multiple interior organizer pockets, a tricot lined quick access top pocket, and a shoe tunnel this duffel has it all. The carry handles also double as backpack straps for carrying over longer distances.
The backpack and tote were designed by Meredith Winters Giesting.
