The Kinzie Street™ Collection – Industrial Modern Bags for Every Day Edge

A New Aesthetic and a New Attitude from Briggs & Riley

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inspired by society’s tech-savvy, with an equally high demand for
refined design and quality, Briggs & Riley brings on the style with a
new, industrial-sleek collection of sophisticated laptop bags and day
bags. The Kinzie Street Collection, is designed to satisfy fast-paced
professionals with beautiful and functional pieces for everyday use, and
for everyday electronics. Reminiscent of architecture that combine urban
modernism and industrial roots, the Kinzie Street Collection looks
handcrafted and has a vintage feel, yet features a proprietary high-tech
embossed textured fabric (Tartex™). Each silhouette combines industrial
knurled hardware accents and high-grain leather details for a
retro-modern mix. Kinzie Street introduces the first lifetime-warrantied
collection of performance day bags to the market.

Riley consists of seven sleek ‘agender’ day bag and laptop bags in grey
or navy; two backpacks, tote, micro messenger, duffel, cabin bag, and
carry-on spinner, ranging in price from $229 – $399.

throughout the day. We have brought our reality engineering to an
entirely new level by making every Kinzie Street bag hands-free and
entirely designed around ease of use for technologies like phones and
tablets,” said Briggs & Riley CEO, Richard Krulik. Every bag is equipped
with a special fleece-lined padded tablet pocket and RFID blocking
pockets to protect identify theft and credit card theft, each style is
also packaged in a reusable canvas bag. The minimalist aesthetic is
enhanced by smart interior organizers with thoughtful features that keep
us smoothly on the go, including a leather loop on shoulder straps for
hanging accessories, leather cord organizer, leather pen loops, interior
zippered mesh pockets, and a SpeedThru™ pocket for storing personal
belongings during travel. “We are proud to debut new collections to our
portfolio that introduce our quality and performance designs to younger
audiences of the tech generation; who now live, work and play in
different ways than previous generations,” continued Krulik.
