Luggage & Backpacks News by Solo New York : Solo New York (, a leading, urban-inspired designer of backpacks, totes, duffels, briefs, and sleeves, today announced the launch of the new Highland Collection which includes three contemporary backpacks, three sleek briefcases, and a vertical brief/backpack hybrid.

Inspired by the ruggedness and styles of Scotland yet infused with urban utility from the streets of New York, the Highland Collection incorporates textured canvas with oxford linings and metal hardware for a look that stands out in both professional and casual settings. Designed for everyday use and as a stylish yet durable and functional accessory for urban nomads, seasoned travelers and young professionals, the Highland Collection offers protected storage for laptops, tablets and accessories.

"Our designers put a New York spin on utilitarian waxed canvas used since the 19th century; what sailors relied on during extreme conditions was reimagined in a sharp and fun style for urbanites," said Serkan Ozturkcan, Vice President of Marketing for Solo New York. "Muted earthy colors and sleek hardware give the Highland Collection a polished edge, and the collection develops a cool, worn-in look that gets better with each use."

Below are the seven bags from the Highlands Collection bags, available in Ash, Indigo and Plaid colorways, and with strong and traditional Scottish names.
