In collaboration with Candamill.

”In the last year, we’ve embraced what we describe to be our "New Mid-Century Aesthetic.” We introduced the Racer – a style that’s based on a racer snake. The brass tubing chain references the fast and fluid movement of the snake, adding richness to the bag while it’s carried.”

- Cindy & Christian Candamill

Candamill is a dynamic fashion label, helmed by New York based designers Cindy and Cristian Candamil. Before starting the company it was evident that the brother and sister team would venture down this path, both creatives having had expansive and diversified backgrounds in art, fashion and design. Born to Colombian parents and raised in Queens, New York- Cristian, a conceptual artist with over a decade of experience, actively involved in numerous projects in New York's art and design circles, while Cindy completed a fashion degree at The Fashion Institute of Technology and went forward to work for fashion icons Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen. Designed and crafted in New York, the label creates high-quality pieces with an emphasis on balance and composition. Candamill interprets their aesthetic as "New Mid-Century" with a lens that finds opulence in simplicity. 

The developments in design during the Mid-20th century at its essence was a rejection of tradition, a real embrace of moving forward. Candamill's approach to New Mid-Century is not based on style, but the idea of rethinking the way accessories are made. One of the unique design features found in the Truss, is the 4 panel frame system, which preserves the silhouette, allowing the bag to stand tall over years of heavy use. Candamill's hardware is developed with the same craftsman who did the restoration of Saint Patricks Cathedral in New York City. These untraditional techniques have allowed them to bring a new feeling to the category.
