Inside Sandqvist

The Swedish bag manufacturer Sandqvist is releasing a new series during SS17. It's a more fashion forward type of collection than the rest of Sandqvist's classic bags.

Sandqvist was founded 2004 in Stockholm by Anton Sandqvist together with his brother Daniel Sandqvist and Sebastian Westin. They create bags with a classic, uncomplicated and functional design. The inspiration comes from the Nordic landscape with its forests, rivers and vast unpopulated areas - as well as the urban city life. This spring they're launching KEOS, a series of bags that, according to Westin, is Sandqvist's most fashion forward right now. Inspiration for the KEOS design is found in the summer nights of Stockholm - the explosion of colors you see when walking home from the club, just when the night turns into day. The series consists of four different designs in two colors, willow green with light pink lining and black with cobalt blue lining. Westin states that the KEOS bags have the same smart features that define Sandqvist as a brand.
