DEFY 2015 Collection
 
The range of products offered by DEFY continues to grow and the 2015 collection is going to feature some completely new bags.

I recently went back to the DEFY MFG.Co. workshop in the Ravenswood area of Chicago to shoot some their awesome new bags, most of which will launch over the next few months.

The creative direction called for Teddy VerBockel — whose official job title is "Worlds Greatest Intern"— to model the bag that bears his name astride Chris Tag's vintage Velocette motorcycle. The shoot took place on location in the alley directly behind DEFY's workshop and in amongst the bewildering collection of antiques and knick-knacks in Architectural Artifacts. We shot the most luxurious new leather bags. Thompson Hotel in downtown Chicago
