Quadra is upping the ante in 2016, with new carrying solutions introduced to the corporate, fashion, sport and school essential ranges, and a collection that boasts both modern and traditional styles, and unrivalled sophistication.
This year sees the launch of eight new products in five key areas, with the stand-out addition being the NuHide three-piece collection of full-grain, leather-look bags. The range combines style and function and has been designed to provide a single stylish solution that takes the user from office to weekend break. It comprises the QD870 NuHide Laptop Shuttle, QD875 NuHide Messenger and QD878 NuHide Weekender, all of which benefit from classic, minimalist silhouettes that will appeal not only to the fashion consumer, but also to the classic, traditional bag lover.
Quadra’s Corporate collection, in hardwearing and attractive polyester fabrics, is styled to project a classy, confident image and responds directly to the modern business person’s carrying requirements. Signature features include lined tablet compartments, padded laptop sections, USB loops, organiser sections, document sections, wheelie bag straps and EasyPanel systems for maximum decoration potential.
In 2016, the Corporate collection welcomes the arrival of the new QD975 Tungsten Business Traveller, which is lightweight and aircraft cabin compatible. Its features, which include a padded laptop compartment, organiser section and ample room for personal essentials, meet the specific requirements of the modern business traveller. “This travel bag is set to soar in 2016,” says the brand, “and is fully compliant with IATA-recommended dimensions for cabin baggage across all major airlines.”
The SLX Performance collection will be further enhanced by the addition of four new styles in 2016, each fulfilling a different gap in the market: QX515 5-Litre Performance Waistpack, QX550 30-Litre Stowaway Carry-On, QX560 60-Litre Haul Bag and the QX570 15-Litre Courier Bag. The SLX collection is perfect for a wide range of pursuits, from training to mountain biking, says Quadra, adding: “The bags are guaranteed to go the distance: they’re great all-weather products made from water-repellent, lightweight, 600D/600D rip-stop honeycomb polyester combination fabric, and set the bar for performance sports bags with innovative safety and comfort features at their core.”
Quadra is also developing its Sports and Leisure range with the addition of the new, fresh and vibrant colourways, sapphire blue/black/light grey and fuchsia/black/light grey, to the QS255 Pro Team Backpack, QS270 Pro Team Holdall and QS277 Pro Team Locker Bag. “Whether it’s a locker-sized gym bag, a jumbo holdall or a belt bag, we can offer it in all the favourite teamwear colours,” says the brand, which draws particular attention to its sports bags’ extensive feature set, which includes water bottle pockets; wet pockets and shoe tunnels; padded straps, bases and handles; and valuables pockets with headphone ports.
The classic yet contemporary Quadra Fashion and Leisure collection also welcomes new modern colourways, with the QD610 Vintage Canvas Despatch Bag, QD612 Vintage Canvas Backpack, QD613 Vintage Canvas Holdall and the QD625 Vintage Canvas Satchel Messenger now also available in vintage Oxford navy and vintage light grey.
Quadra comments: “In 2016, Quadra is evolving with new product and new colourways that respond directly to market trends and customer feedback. The new products sit with, and indeed form, their own collections, offering coordinated pieces that can be used individually or as a set. We continue to focus on the details with every Quadra product rich in features, easy to decorate and big on sales potential. Our goal is not simply to meet expectations, but to exceed them.”
