Sarah Frances Kuhn Camera Strap


Camera straps are a thing of a necessity (most straps are, if you think about it), especially in my life, and especially during fashion month. After a day of shooting Top Shelves, crawling through a pit of Italian photographers at a show, and lugging 25 lbs of equipment around in a tote-turned-stuffed-sausage-bag, the last thing I want to be doing is trying to balance my Canon 5D in the crook of my elbow as I use one hand to record a voice memo and the other to adjust Carolyn Murphy's ear cuff backstage (this happened). Sometimes you just want to be hands-free. But who says you can't look well-accessorized while you're getting things done? Sarah Frances Kuhn (former Teen Vogue accessories editor) to the rescue: she's been making gilt-and-leather woven chains—more 'Chanel' than 'bike'—for cameras, from point-and-shoots to SLRs, as well as wristlets for iPhones. The best part of mine? The cushy rubber tubing right where you need it. It's a little heavier than the factory strap that came with the camera, but as Caroline de Maigret remarked, "so much more chic." Isn't it nice when fashion meets function?
