Spotlight On: Sling Bags
We caught up with our Lead Product Designer, Jordan, to bring you the inside scoop on our latest style sensation: the Harley Sling Bag!
Make this season your most stylish one yet with our stunning Harley Sling Bags! Available in three transitional colour options – Black, Chocolate, and Soft Tan – these bags are set to elevate your winter wardrobe.
We sat down with Jordan, Katie Loxton's Lead Product Designer, to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peek, learn more about the creative process behind this exciting new profile, and the inspiration that brought it to life!
What inspired the creation of Harley?
"We designed the Harley bag as our unique interpretation of the rapidly emerging sling bag trend. Our goal was to craft a versatile, casual, and effortlessly cool accessory that seamlessly complements any outfit. Plus, we were keen on ensuring it's incredibly functional for everyday use, making it a must-have addition to your wardrobe!"
Can you describe the overall vibe of the collection in three words?
Can you tell us about your personal favourite feature?
"I love the asymmetric strap detail on the Harley. In the initial stage of the design, it used to shift depending on the length of the crossbody strap, but we loved the asymmetric look so much that we altered the design to ensure you get the same look no matter what length you wear it."
Can you describe the colour palette and how it complements the collection's overall feel?
"When we designed the Harley bag, our primary aim was to offer a colour palette to cater to every individual's preferences. While we incorporated our timeless classic black and soft tan hues, we also introduced a rich chocolate shade. This particular colour choice was inspired by one of the key tones featured in our AW23 collection, adding a touch of seasonal sophistication to the Harley lineup."
What occasions or activities is Harley perfect for?
“The Harley Sling Bag is all about everyday effortless style. It's perfect for anyone who wants a chic yet functional accessory. Whether you're heading to work, meeting friends, or exploring the city, this bag has got you covered!”
Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to add this piece to their everyday wardrobe?
“I love adding a personal touch by adding my embroidered initials to the bag strap, and I like to wear it slightly shorter across my chest, paired with jeans, an oversized tee, and a stylish pair of Sambas!”
