‘property of…‘ is the brainchild of two friends whose collective imagination and passion for design has led to the introduction of an exciting new range of men’s bags. Richard Chamberlain and Peter Teo started designing bags whilst at college in London together. In 2006 a dedicated line of men’s bags was established with the primary goal of creating a product range that was stylish yet functional. In a market dominated by the categories of travel luggage,leather goods, sports and technical bags, the hope is to mix things up with a fresh approach. With the view that the collection should be recognized for its amalgam of fabric, color, proportion and cut, any labelling is carefully considered to not outshine the personality of the bag’s owner.
The brand ‘property of…’ was conceived to be a functional low key reference to a bag’s owner rather than its designers. ‘property of…’ bags are largely fabric based. Coated cotton jacquards, distressed canvas, crisp denim and soft nylons are widely employed and accented with natural leather details. Where a bags’ main body is formed from leather or suede it is often contrasted with nylon bindings or perhaps cotton webbing to provide a less formal aesthetic. Great care is taken that functional details, straps and pockets are always positioned intuitively and that storage compartments are well thought through. This mix of thoughtful design with high-quality, long-lasting materials will consistently result in products which look good, work well and feel right for their owners. The ‘property of…’ collection is currently available in selected stores across the U.S.A, Japan and Europe.
