DACRC worked with British Designers Adam Thorpe and Joe Hunter from Vexed Generation to produce Europe’s first range of crime-proof bags and fashion accessories. The stylish products, marketed under the brand Karrysafe, were shown at Milan’s Designers Block. The products were developed in response to research led by Lorraine Gamman on bag theft. Designs were specifically focussed on protecting owners from pickpockets and muggers, preventing the four most common street crimes: dipping, lifting, slashing and grabbing. On display were the Karrysafe Screamer and Hoodsack backpacks, the Scroll Top backpack and shoulder bag and PhoneSafe and BodySafe accessories.
