Europe’s first range of bags and fashion accessories specifically designed to deter theft was launched at the Design Council on Tuesday. Created by Vexed Generation, the products were developed in conjunction with the Suzy Lamplugh Trust and Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science and police crime prevention experts were also consulted. The products include lingerie-style stealth belts and bands for concealing mobile phones. Designs incorporate features such as anti-slash materials, cut-proof straps and combination lock clips. Products will be available from retailers throughout the UK under the Karrysafe brand.
