David was born in the Bronx, grew up in Florida the designer returned to NYC to attend art school and wanted to start a line that featured unique, colorful and heavily influenced by pop culture. A majority of the designs are limited edition and sell out fast, such as the Money Bag, Paris Bag and it’s celebrity collabs with Chris Brown, Shaquille O’neal, Spike Lee, Young Thug, and licenses with Marvel, Nickelodeon and the NBA. In the past the website has even crashed due to so many trying to purchase the graphic backpacks. The bags are 100% polyester and water resistant with wide comfy straps.
