Messenger

A New Yorker for 24 years, designer van de Wiel was always crazy about those vinyl messenger bags worn by the courier dudes weaving in and out of Sixth Avenue traffic. Hands free. Easy. So in her first Black Line Crazy collection, she decided each messenger bag would be more than spacious and then, showcase three designs adapted from original BLC paintings. (One on the outside flap. One on the inside. And one on the back, of course.)
