Herschel Supply Co.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The name Herschel Supply Co. has become synonymous with backpacks and duffels. With over 400 options, these bags are growing out of control. I had the chance to chat with Herschel Supply’s Caley Vanular to find out more about the brand and a little bit about her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adele Tetangco: What exactly do you do at Herschel Supply Co?

I’m the Digital Marketing & Media Manager

AT: Tell me your biggest twitter blunder.
CV:
I personally haven’t had any yet, although before we started contributing on twitter someone in the company had accidentally linked the @HerschelSupply account to their personal account and sent out about six tweets… I had to go in and fix that one at 3am.

AT: What are your top three Herschel bags?
CV:
My three favourite Herschel Supply bags are:

1. Cotton Canvas Settlement ($79.99).
2. Strand Duffel ($59.99).
3. Cotton Canvas Novel ($109.99).

AT: What’s your favourite collaboration that Herschel has done to date?
CV:
I am really into the new Stussy & Herschel Supply Aloha Collection and the older Holden for Herschel Supply Collection.

AT: Tell me about you. I want to hear about you. What’s one thing you can’t live without?
CV:
I couldn’t live without the great outdoors.

AT: Do you have a go-to outfit?
CV:
Acne boots, good fitting denim and a classic t-shirt.

AT: If you were allowed to splurge on one fashion piece, what would you buy?
CV:
A great pair of Leather Boots or Jacket.

AT: Name your favourite colour?
CV:
Forest Green.

AT: If you could design your own backpack, what would it look like?
CV:
It would be a technical backcountry backpack that looks like a simple settlement backpack. The backpack would be plain on the outside and over equipped on the inside so you could actually use it for everything, anywhere.
