In 2011 Sarah Frances Kuhn left a promising position in fashion media to start her own accessories line, SFK. Rooted in technique and process, the brand makes playful straps for serious cameras using high quality and unconventional materials. Building off the bright and colorful aesthetic established in previous collections, SFK launches a new limited edition collection in collaboration with Meredith Wendell. Handmade using discarded materials from Meredith Wendell's past accessories collections, the striking camera straps are constructed of bright climbing rope, Italian leather, polished chain and Scottish plaid.

The two New York-based designers came together to celebrate a love for photography and its role in fashion design—after all, the latter is often inaccessible without the former. Understanding each day brings different shooting situations the straps are available in both point-and-shoot and larger SLR styles, each with a soft leather neck band to keep the more abrasive materials at bay.

The Sarah Frances Kuhn and Meredith Wendell collaboration collection is available today directly from SFK online for between $75 and $125.
