Antwerp Label YNGR Launched a Bag Line for Style-Savvy Travelers

A former Tom Ford designer has launched his first line of democratic designer bags made out of recycled leather, dubbed YNGR. Discover their latest collection and go through our favorite YNGR bags.

The beginnings of YNGR

The Caribbean born and raised Donovan Tjon moved to study fashion at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. Which lead him to pursue his career as a womenswear designer for Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs.

“After eight years of working in the fashion world, I thought it was time to take a new step and start my own project. My personal and professional experiences have brought me to so many big cities and they’ve become a big source of inspiration for the story we’re trying to tell at YNGR,” said Donovan.

For style-savvy urban travelers

YNGR’s inspiration comes from everyday objects and urban materials. The Antwerp label stands for making real things and giving it their own signature twist. Think isolation foils, silver bubble wrap, seat belt buckles, and market bags in Chinese supermarkets. Besides that, we appreciate their playful, refreshing and high-end ways of presenting their democratic bags to a public who actually travels.

“It’s about forgetting your age, challenging expectations, and constantly being on the go in search of new ideas and experiences,” stated the YNGR founders.

The founders of the newly-born brand go by the name of Donovan Tjon and his partner Jan Pirenne, and are targeting style-savvy urban travelers. Men and women who are looking for fashion that makes a statement, without compromising on affordability or sustainability. That’s something we stand for because nothing is better than traveling in style and comfort.

Moreover, the bags are made from recycled leather. YNGR uses a new breakthrough material made out of off-cuts. These fabrics then get a high-quality remake and are never treated with the use of chemicals.

Support YNGR’s crowdfunding campaign

YNGR has started a crowdfunding to build up their young business. Every little bit helps so if you feel like backing this project you can donate to their Kickstarter campaign via their online boutique.
