Some more new product I worked on has hit stores. This latest collection features a convertible duffel bag and lightweight technical cap, designed to hook with the Training Supply collection from Reebok Apparel.
My latest work for Reebok is now in stores: the Spring/Summer 2019 Women’s Foundation collection. Designed for the price-conscious, athletic female consumer, the challenge for this collection was to balance cost and features without compromising on style.
The previous Foundation Collection was due for an overhaul, and my expertise was needed to determine the right silhouette assortment within the global competitive landscape at this price point. I was also tasked with finding the right ingredient mix to create an aesthetic that reflected the fresh direction of Reebok apparel.
THE COLLECTION INCLUDES:
Ventilated backpack with padded shoulder straps
Lightweight, ventilated cylinder duffel
Oversized, ventilated classic duffel with 2 handle/strap options
Lightweight, ventilated crossbody tote with adjustable strap

Some of the latest products I designed for Reebok have just hit the market: a collection of bags and accessories from the Women’s Foundation collection.
This consumer is price conscious but doesn’t want to compromise on function or style. We used a lightweight crinkle poly fabric, combined with large mesh panels for ventilation and a bold graphic to create the right balance. The collection includes a cylinder bag, duffel, backpack and tote, along with a water bottle and baseball cap.
Coming soon: A hybrid between a vest and backpack, designed for Reebok FW 16.
Designed with the needs of the most elite obstacle course athletes in mind such as those running the Spartan Ultra Beast. To equip these inspiring athletes for the 26+ miles, 60 obstacles, and 12-14 hours of race time, this pack features:
- strategically paneled two-way stretch cordura fabric and Black Cam cordura for the abrasion resistance
- 2 liter hydrapak bladder, magnetic drinking tube and R/L outlets for a customized hydration experience
- plenty of easy-access stash pockets for storing food/fuel or gear
- waterproof bonded pocket for race-ready electronics
- soft, brushed fabrics next to skin for a chafe-free run experience
- adjustable side-release with elasticity for easy breathing
The feature I am most proud of though is the easy refill system. Simply unclip at the sides and flip the bag front to pack for fast and easy access to hydration. Minimal construction and a streamlined user experience help to save time at water stations while giving tired hands a break from unnecessary actions and adjustments.
The project is a result of an intense research period, multiple prototypes, user testing and expert athlete feedback.
Make sure to check back soon for a full portfolio page and video of the Spartan Hybrid in action!
Made with durable yet stylish Cordura fabric, these bags are designed for the athlete on the go. Large, breathable pockets for storage of sweaty gear, reflective details, brushed pockets for your phone, padded laptop pockets and water resistant zippers make sure you and your gear are taken care of all day long. From your commute to work to your workout (and everything in between), these bags have you covered!
The bag features durable ripstop fabric, reflective webbing, paracord zipper pulls and a bold graphic with mesh overlay. There are tons of pockets for ample storage and a padded lap top sleeve on the interior. Perfect for a little urban adventuring!

This week I am excited to share yet another round of photos from the JWF Backpack project that I designed for Reebok. You might remember from my last post that this backpack was designed with versatility in mind. The concept was to create one iconic backpack that could link to specific sneakers from the Reebok Classics range by changing up fabrics, trims and details.
This is the JWF Confetti, designed to hook to the Reebok Ventilator CC for women. As the Ventilator celebrates its 25th birthday this year, we wanted to create a throwback feel to this bag and celebrate this sneaker's heritage.
Features include roomy side pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, a hidden phone pocket and an additional shoe bag to stash an extra pair of kicks or gear that stinks.
Last month, I shared some photos of my latest work for Reebok. The JWF Backpack was designed to hook with sneakers from the Reebok Classics range. This classic, iconic silhouette with universal features is able to adapt to the very different personalities of selected footwear by changing up fabrics, details and trims.
This is the Sophisticated Tech version, designed to pair with the Reebok Ventilator Adapt ST. The neoprene style interlock with a hexagon texture references the Heaxalite cushion technology that these kicks are famous for. The reflective heat transfer branding is a reference to the discreet reflective upper that keeps you visible at night. Coated zippers and shrink-wrapped pullers amplify the sleek bonded details from the sneaker.
Other features include:
- internal webbing loops with a carabiner for usable storage
- ballistic nylon base fabric for durability
- side pockets for accessible storage you can access on the go
- hidden phone pocket on the back panel
- shoe bag included for separated stashing of gear that stinks
A full portfolio page complete with the other three backpacks is in the works, so make sure to check back again soon.
I am excited to finally share some of the work I have been doing for Reebok! The JWF Backpack was designed to hook to specific footwear from the Reebok Classics range. The challenge was to create the iconic lifestyle backpack that could use variations in color, trim, fabrications and details to link to a key selection of seasonal footwear.
The project began with five versions, each of which has its own distinct personality. A full portfolio page will be coming soon, but for now I wanted to share some images of my favorite: the JW Luxe. This bag, along with the others in this pack, can be found online in many countries, including Canada.
Check back again soon for more photos!
