In the Bag: Stella McCartney Designs for LeSportsac

Renata Espinosa
January 23rd, 2008 @ 5:42 PM - New York

Stella McCartney's new collaboration with LeSportsac, maker of lightweight, highly functional nylon totes and luggage, makes perfect sense. Not only does McCartney lead the way when it comes to chic, vegan-friendly (i.e., non-leather) accessories, but as a busy mother herself, she understands the importance of a well-designed handbag that can serve as a chic diaper bag, overnight business travel duffle or gym bag without actually looking like a traditional version of any of those things.

The 17 piece Spring/Summer 2008 collection, which launches in February on LeSportsac.com, is a 100 percent eco-friendly collection made from recycled materials, down to the biodegradable dust bags each bag comes with. They feature oversized hardware, or "shoulder jewelry" as McCartney terms it," extensive pockets both inside and out, signature McCartney parachute pulls and quilted fabrics in two color palettes – "Pop," which features eye-catching oranges and blues, and "Posh," a more subdued, sophisticated palette of soft mauves and dusty pinks. And for kids, there's even a bunny backpack to keep them happy.

The partnership marks the first time LeSportsac has worked with a well-known designer such as Stella McCartney, and while this collection is a limited edition, future collections from the designer are a possibility.
