Cam Newton Launches A Limited Edition Line Of Luxury Travel Bags

By Parker Diakite


Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is known for his unique fashion-forward style in the world of athletes. And now, thanks to a new collab with travel bag company VINTA Supply Co., he’s taking his style to a new level.

The first design with his new partnership is a limited-edition backpack called the TYPE-11 C1N.  Known for its fashion-forward design, “the backpack was created for style-conscious travelers and busy city life,” a press release reads.

“I’m excited to be working with Vinta and putting my first bag out into the world. It’s called the TYPE-II C1N, and it’s designed for a person like me, with a constant schedule, who doesn’t stop and wants a fashionable, high-quality bag that’s functional for everyday life,” Newton said in a statement. “It’s customizable, stylish, and every feature has been so well thought out and designed. That’s what Vinta embodies: travel made easy. I know they’ve done it for me, and I know they’re going to do it for everyone who buys one.”

The TYPE -II C1N comes in two colors – sand and berry – and is made with a waterproof twill exterior.  The bag features a space for a 15” laptop, an elevated satin interior, internal mesh pockets, and flat lay panels.

“Cam bought one of our bags, saw all the compartments and said he wanted to be involved with us.” With that, Newton contacted Vinta and eventually was brought on board as an investor and creative partner, Douglas Larsen, co-founder and lead designer of Vinta told WWD.

VINTA Supply Co. was founded in 2015 in New York City by photographer and designer Victor Soto. After collaborating with Larsen,  the backpack has turned into a premium line of travel accessories for jet setters. 

The bag is on sale for $250 but you can catch a deal right now for $198.
