Our Penfield x Slam City project was a treat to work on. Open up their Messenger bag in you’ll be in for a surprise…
The Penfield x Slam City Skates “Messenger” Bag
We have been working with Penfield for a good while now, having been fans of the outdoor clothing produced by this long-established company from Massachusetts for a long time.
Some of the hidden gems in each season have always been in the luggage department as Penfield make great bags. This is why when the opportunity to collaborate on something arose, we picked out their Messenger bag and decided to make it functional and understated with a surprise inside.
This heavyweight canvas satchel has leather straps and a leather trim with a cotton webbing shoulder strap. The bag features a co-branded patch on the centre of the front panel and a round Slam City Skates London patch on the back. Undoing the leather straps and opening the front panel reveals two concealed front pockets and the lining inside…
Arran Gregory’s Bear Safe graphic on the inside of the Penfield x Slam City Skates “Messenger” Bag
The bag lining is a repeat pattern of Arran Gregory’s popular ‘Bear Safe’ graphic which appeared as a Slam t-shirt recently. This lining appears throughout the spacious main compartment. The back panel of the bag also has another outer compartment sealed by a central brass popper. We are happy we were able to produce this piece of essential kit ready for work, school or a day out skating in the city.
