LOS ANGELES, Calif. – September 29, 2021 – HEX, the award-winning fashion accessory brand, today introduces the HEX x Misshattan Camera Capsule in collaboration with NYC-based commercial and travel photographer Natalie Amrossi (AKA Misshattan), known for her ability to create sensory experiences with impressive aerial perspectives and travel photography. Born and raised in Queens, New York, Misshattan’s brand is about serving as a mantra for those who have the audacity to pursue their dreams.
“I’ve known Trent and the HEX team for several years and they were a pleasure to work with. They are all creatives and photographers themselves, so I knew the bags would turn out great – which they did!,” said Amrossi. “I’m really proud of the collection; if it inspires just one person to pursue what they want to do and helps them get out there, it’s all worth it.”
The new Capsule includes limited edition versions of HEX’s popular DSLR Sling V2 and Back Loader DSLR Backpack. Exclusive features include custom Misshattan’s logo treatments including a polished badge, Misshattan NYC photo print lining and integrated rain covers, and customized airmesh back with embroidered logoing. Designed for trips and shoots where ease of movement is key, the HEX bags are protective, durable and customizable with EVA foam with fleece lining and removable divider inserts.
“It’s been an honor to collaborate with Natalie on this capsule, and to bring it to life in a way that captures her impressive work and focus on inspiring and lifting up a new generation of creatives,” said Trent Valladares, HEX co-founder.
