Greg Selkoe’s latest endeavor, Boylston Trading Company, has certainly taken off on the right foot. They’ve done some really impressive collaborations since launching and their latest with Lexdray is one of our favorites. The capsule collection finds three of Lexdray’s signature bags in a new royal blue colorway. The Boulder Pack, Tahoe Duffle and Stockholm Brief messenger are fitted with some fine details as well including contrasting black details found on the base, zip, piping and handle, with lining coming in a red tiger-camo print. Each design is limited to 100 pieces and can be found for pre-order through BTC, with a full release slated for November 25th.
Lexdray has launched a video series to compliment their current Classified Collection. Each day, Lexdray will be showcasing a piece from the Classified Collection via 3D video, which have been crafted in coordination with LA production company, Wendel. Viewers get a 3D look at each bag so they can see all the intricate details from the military grade hardware to the weather resistant fabric.
We’ve covered the goods in the past, heck we even were even fortunate enough to take Lexdray on a trip with us a few months back. They blend Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality and deliver them in all black shells. Each bag is individually numbered, and our personal favorite is the Tokyo Pack, the video of which can be seen below alongside another for the Boulder Pack. Be sure to follow the video drops on Lexdray’s blog to check out detailed looks at the Tahoe Duffel and Manhattan Messenger.
This past weekend, I made my first trip out to Chicago and had the opportunity to take a few pieces from Lexdray‘s Classified Collection along for the ride. Two of the brand’s premier products — the Tahoe Duffel and Boulder Backpack — were my companions for the trip and I honestly don’t think I’d want it any other way. One of the first things that stood out to us when we got turned to Lexdray is the brand’s ability to make travel bags that are functional to the tenth degree and aesthetically pleasing as well.
We recently had the opportunity to get a closer look at Lexdray — a unique line of bags and cases all of which are inspired by Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality. Lexdray founder Alex Drayer delivers some fine details with this product. Every pocket on every bag has been measured to hold specific items and every shoulder strap has been designed for total comfort. Aesthetically, the current offerings come in an all-black shell and are limited to 550 pieces per style, with each bag being individually numbered as well.
The collection will be carried at Reed Space in NYC, Colette in Paris, Union in LA , The Darkside Initiative in SF and Concepts in Boston.
