Bellroy Sling & Sling Mini
The Bellroy Sling Range has really hit a chord with customers looking for stylish hands-free carry. It has expanded from one style to Mini and Premium versions of both Sling and Sling Mini. Slings kicked off a whole new small cross-body bags category for Bellroy. They are ideal for when you have more than your pockets can carry but not enough for a backpack. For this project, a series of rapid prototypes were drafted and sewn in-house with the Bellroy pattern maker. These were then tested by staff and the design refined so that by the time it was handed over to the supplier it was a highly resolved design with a complete specification including patterns. Images of the prototypes below, show the evolution of the style through the design process.
