We’d strongly advise you guys to keep an eye out in the new year for J. Panther Luggage Co. We had the privilege of checking out a sneak preview of their new collection this week and were mighty impressed with what we saw.
J. Panther Luggage Co. is a new line of artisan-made bags from ex-Evisu designer Johnny Diamandis. The brand was founded on a passion for innovation, design classics and products that are built to last a lifetime. Their bags and accessories are designed and tested in New York City and then hand crafted and finished by New England artisans who’ve been making hand made luggage for generations.
Innovative functionality and detailing both inside and out should make the products particularly suitable for frequent travellers as well as those who wish to make both a stylish statement and a lifetime investment. Many of the pieces are constructed from water resistant, U.S tanned leather and industrial strength canvas imported from a long-time supplier to the British military. Utilising quality ingredients such as these, the brand have managed to create high end luggage with a distinct American flavour.
Look out for J. Panther Luggage Co. in stores from January 2011, priced from $450. For more details, head on over to www.jpantherluggage.com.
