Taken inspirations from the period ruled by The Hanoverians, England’s ruling family from 1714 to 1837 (which resulted in 4 kings named George), designers Eddie Pendergast and Marco Cairns established The DUFFER of St. GEORGE in 1984, as a label of which to update traditional Anglo-Saxon looks with contemporary materials and forms. The result is a unique collection with a mix of new yet familiar look.
Recently, the brand collaborated with UK-based Michael Linnell, the official mailroom & postal supplies manufacturer for Royal Mail of England, in producing a collaborative messenger bag. Based of the Michael Linnell’s satchel, a The DUFFER of St. GEORGE crest replaced where the “Royal Mail” imprint should be. Large reflective stripe can be found on the flap enclosure, with additional reflective stripes on both sides of the bag. available in red and black, the DUFFER of St. GEORGE x Michael Linnell – Messenger Bag retails for JP¥ 12,390 (~US$ 112) at The DUFFER of St. GEORGE branch within the ZOZOTOWN online shopping network. Also available at DUFFER of St. GEORGE retail locations across Japan.
