Minimalist Swedish Luggage and accessory brand, C Dellstrand was founded in 2010 by Christoffer Dellstrand. The brand focuses mainly on impeccable construction and proportions to create products that are not only beautiful, but simple and functional. Inspired by industrial shapes, functionalism and everyday life, the brand has an aesthetic that is unpretentious and beautifully minimalistic.
The Spring/Summer 2014 collection was made entirely in Italy – which was a first for this brand, and will most likely not be the last, judging by how well it turned out. Using only grey, black and white, the brand brings more focus to the materials and strong shapes of the bags, while maintaining the classic style to make it wearable any time regardless of the latest trends. The bags are made of vegetable tanned leather and full grain calf hair leather to create some very strong rectangular forms, which are rarely seen in leather products of this type. In addition, zippers have been interestingly placed to give the bags an unique minimalist flair.
The zipper backpack is definitely the show stopper in this collection – something I would definitely add to my wish list! The collection is available at Assembly New York
