New York design duo Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow of Public School and Los Angeles accessory brand, Killspencer have collaborated on two limited edition leather bags—a weekender and a backpack. Both pieces are comprised of pressed Italian matte leather, nylon webbing, and Riri zippers. The interior of the bags feature IFAC class 1 fire retardant and waterproof black nylon lining.
“We are longtime fans of Killspencer so when the opportunity came to collaborate, we did so happily. It made sense for us. It was the perfect meeting of east and west coast companies who came together to create two USA-made pieces that we hope our customers will enjoy,” says Chow and Osborne.
Spencer Nikosey, Owner of Killspencer added “I have so much respect for what Dao-Yi and Maxwell have built in the last couple of years. I’ve been a fan of their work since they started. I think both our brands explore the limits with materials, manufacturing processes and details. So when Dao-Yi and Maxwell put their ‘spin’ on our classic Weekender Bag and our Special Ops Backpack I couldn’t have been more excited.”
The Weekender retails for $850, while the Backpack is priced at $575. Both are currently available for purchase at PublicSchoolNYC.com, KillSpencer.com, and select retailers.
