jill-e Press Release

ORLANDO, October 25, 2010 – The hottest line of high-style professional-quality men’s camera bags just got hotter with the addition of an eye-catching new nylon-and-leather jack™ day bag from jill-e designs.  This versatile, affordable new offering – designed for comfort, convenience and quick response –makes its U.S. debut later this month at PhotoPlus Expo in New York City after a successful September unveiling at photokina in Germany, the company announced today.

In addition, jill-e designs will introduce an expanded line of innovative slip-on covers to give its popular black messenger-style day bag an even greater variety of fresh looks.  The new jack™ small messenger bag, the black messenger bag and its trendy new covers, and many other offerings from the company’s portfolio of high-fashion, high-function camera and carry bags will be on display Oct. 28-30 at the Jacob Javits Center in Booth #976.

“We always like to have something special for the photography industry’s big New York show, and we think our jack™ small messenger bag as well as our exciting new messenger bag covers fit the bill this year,” said Jill Wight, President of jill-e designs.  “We’ll have something for everyone – for their every mood and their every move.”

With jack™, jill-e designs brings a touch of manly flair to a unique line of high-quality professional camera bags –combining pro ruggedness and reliability on the inside with rakish good looks on the outside.  The new jack™ small

messenger bag maintains this standard while putting its image and functionality within reach of even more male photographers.  Made of the highest-quality nylon with rich Columbian leather trim, the bag can hold one full set-up – a camera body, two lenses and a flash – plus an interior protective pocket suitable for an iPad or similar device.

The jack™ small messenger bag also comes equipped with a zippered pocket / slot on the bag back that fits over the telescoping handle of a rolling suitcase to trolley both bags together, as well as multiple interior and exterior pockets for memory cards, batteries and other accessories and personal items – and, of course, the padding, configurable Velcro dividers and other quality features that jill-e designs bags are known for.  The suggested retail price is $189.99.

Visitors to the jill-e designs booth also will find an array of new slip-on bag covers for the company’s casual black messenger-style day bag – sporting classic, safari, and fun& fancy designs.  Now there are even more possibilities for changing the appearance of the bag whenever the user’s mood, wardrobe or activity change.  Each cover is crafted to slip completely and effortlessly over the exterior of the bag.  They don’t interfere with access to the main interior compartment or to side pockets, and they remain firmly and comfortably in place.

Made of rich black nylon, this bag features an adjustable shoulder strap and interior drawstring closure to protect belongings from dust and moisture.  Like every jill-e designs bag, it has configurable dividers inside to secure one’s fragile gear, and plenty of pockets for personal items.  And jill-e designs is rolling out affordable new pricing:  bags now have a suggested retail price of $39.99, and slip-on covers a suggested retail price of $10.00 each.  Sets that include one bag and a two-cover “collection” have a suggested retail price of $59.99.

The jill-e designs booth will have on display an extensive sampling of the company’s stylish, versatile, lightweight camera and carry bags – including a trio of high-fashion clutches and a pair of durable, decorated backpacks “right-sized” for the female frame.  Purchases during the show can be made through three of the country’s largest photo retailers:  Adorama (Booth #723), B&H (Booth #353) and Unique Photo (Booth #713).

“All of our quality camera and carry bags are made expressly for today’s technology-rich, on-the-go lifestyle,” Wight said.  “They do much more than just transport your equipment and belongings – they make a fashion statement that enhances your creative credentials and your personal image.  All bags by jill-e designs keep your electronic devices safe and secure – and they look terrific doing it!”
