A marriage of convenience and an object of beauty. Friends and neighbours Ally Capellino and Studio Nicholson couldn't resist a collaboration. AC leathers, metals and construction are given the pared back treatment from Nick the minimalist.
Our latest collaboration with weatherwear experts Norwegian Rain has resulted in a highly functional and sophisticated proofed rucksack. Made from Norwegian Rain’s unique recycled PET fabric from Japan, and complimented by our signature Italian bridle leather straps and trims, this cool classic is also highly technical. Featuring sealed seams and waterproof zips it is both waterproof and lightweight, and has a built in inner sleeve to house a variety of different tech devices.
Sharing a love for simple, functional design and cycling, Ally Capellino partnered with tokyobike in early 2016 to develop a colour story of 3 cycle friendly backpacks. The Ally Capellino signature Frances backpack was given some cycle friendly additions such as a loop for a light
, a proofed nylon exterior and a reflective strip.
In 2006 Ally collaborated with Tate on a joint label 'Artists' range of considered, utilitarian and durable accessories. Much loved, the group continues to be a Tate best seller. To mark the recolouring of the Tate's artists sketch books, 2013 sees the relaunch of the Ally Capellino for Tate 'Artists' range in a new elephant grey canvas with soft orange cotton linings and black leather trims. A new tote, laptop sleeves and a reworked passport bag join the classic apron, satchel, pencil case and artist's roll for brushes.
