2009 marks the 35th Anniversary of LeSportac and to commemorate the event, LeSportsac has introduced a 35th Anniversary collection of bags. The silhouettes are re-issues of some of the original styles that were in the early collections including a flight bag, canteen bag and makeup bag.
LeSportsac is not just bring back retro silhouettes – they’re bringing back all the retro accoutrements – prints, linings and hardware. Each season, LeSportsac will roll out a new print selected from their archives. The first collection featured black solid rip stop with a black/white/green striped webbing. For summer, the very popular multi-color heart pattern is making a comeback.
We were able to get a sneak peak of the fall print – black with mini white polkadots called Swiss Dots. The Swiss Dot print is pairied with a sweet black/white/pink striped webbing. Finally, all of the bags are finished off with reproductions of the original zipper-pulls that were used in the very first LeSportsac collection.
The Swiss Dot collection will hit store shelves this August. If you can’t wait for the Swiss Dot, then grab a hold of the heart pattern arriving in stores just in time for summer.
