A new Olympus Strap
As a brand ambassador for Olympus, I have the extraordinary privilege to co-design a camera strap for the EPL 7, as well as a travel pouch to transport the camera. My first point was to come up with accessories based on practicality and elegance. The materials I’ve chose include neoprene, since it’s strong and durable, yet also soft and comfortable to wear around the neck.
It also is suitcase-friendly, and doesn’t take up too much space (as opposed to leather, which is more difficult to fold and make compact.) The strap also has a handle to fit a pair of shades (my second skin), so we can all have a comfortable free hand when shooting.
My fashion background was a major source of inspiration for me–the laser cut neoprene was inspired by french designer Azzedine Alaia in terms of the design and shape. This is all I can share at this point, but I can’t wait to reveal the final Olympus accessories and design with you!
Many kisses and have a great week-end (I am celebrating my birthday tomorrow in Paris with friends and family and I am very much looking forward to it!!) xoxoxN
