W12 Preview Week: Artist in Residence

LouLou & Tummie, the Dutch illustration duo who brought fanciful floral friends to our Fall LeSportsac Artist in Residence Collection, are back this Winter with an urban rendition of their colorful characters. (Arriving in early December)

The story this season is Urban Fruits – a medley of city staples such as take-out cups and traffic cones that have morphed into whimsical personalities!

Two solid black options are also available, with one of two embroidered characters, One Apple or Hiding Cat, peeking out from each style in this collectible series with a multicolored stitched webbing.

The signature graphic tote for this collection is the playful Frame Tote in Tote To Go. In a burst of energizing orange your morning coffee comes to life as cute over-caffeinated characters on the front panel. While the other panels feature more adorable little friends, like giraffes, strawberries, pineapples, dazed traffic cones and a super-excited potted plant!

Fruit Gang and Teatime have more foodie characters in paneled cosmetics that are guaranteed to make you smile!  Each bag has bold stripes and polka-dots in complementing colors, and feature snack-y favorites in different silly moods.

Our new Pouch Totes feature the lovable Urban Apple and Urban Cat characters which can hang as a charm on your favorite bag, but they also conceal a handy little red tote inside. Which kooky character is your favorite?
