Introducing Kolin & William Bags
Founded in January 2012, men's accessories brand Kolin & William is the brainchild of two friends from London who, over drinks one night in a Manhattan bar, discussed what their ideal travel be like and started sketching a few designs. When they returned to London, they researched craftsmen, workshops and materials, and once they found their ideal production studio tucked away in a mews in the East End of London, Kolin & William was born.
By bringing together an education acquired at the London College of Fashion; training at Alexander McQueen, Preen, Nicola Formichetti, and Armani; a sharp sense of balancing colour and shapes; an appreciation for playfulness in design; and a belief in the importance of fine workmanship and high-quality materials, Kolin and William have developed an eponymous brand whose first bag designs are certainly promising and worth keeping an eye out for.
