Langly is focusing in on apparel.
The Los Angeles-based brand that was founded by a photographer-turned-accessories-designer is introducing its first apparel collection for fall.
Langly, which produces camera and travel bags and other photography-themed accessories, is being offered exclusively on the brand’s e-commerce site. The apparel collection, Langly Supply, centers around outerwear and includes an all-weather packable zip jacket, a heavy-weight flannel field jacket, a lightweight packable slicker and a leather bomber jacket. There is also a slim-fit T-shirt and a watch cap. Everything is made in Los Angeles and retail prices range from $24 for the cap to $650 for the leather jacket.
Langly founder Evan Lane partnered with fashion industry veteran Jerrod Cornish on the apparel collection.
“Jerrod’s background in launching successful brands like Corpus, Yeezy and Off-White made him the perfect partner, his knowledge of fabrications and design is unparalleled,” said Lane. “I wanted to mesh adventurewear with street style and knew Jerrod could bring to the collection the aesthetic I envisioned.”
The designs are unisex and offer technical attributes that make them function in all-weather conditions. Additional products will be offered in the future, the company said.
Langly was created by Lane, a professional photographer, in 2012 to fill what he saw as a void in the camera bag market. Rather than bulky, expensive and boring, the Langly bags sport more-modern designs inspired by World War II rucksacks.
Cornish was a founder of the men’s line Corpus that was produced from 2003 to 2010 and was awarded the Ecco Domani award in 2009. During this time, he founded Blue Hand Mfg. Inc., a 30,000-square-foot production facility in L.A. that worked with labels ranging from Levi Strauss to Yeezy, Off-White and RRL.
