unnamed (5)Belgian designed brand Hedgren has officially launched Hedgren Connect in Australia: an exciting and innovative new urban bag collection designed for people who need to stay connected whilst on the go. Stylish and functional, Connect has two style lines, Firm and Crossing, with both lines incorporating innovative features that complement Australian consumers’ digital lifestyles, from indoors to outdoors.

With Hedgren Connect, power is in the hands of the people. The battery packs which are sold separately ensure that personal technology like tablets, mobile phones and other accessories are kept charged and ready for action – never again will Aussies be caught out by a dying battery when their device is needed most.

Brand Manager for Hedgren in Australia Pam Weston says she is anticipating strong popularity for the new collection.

“Hedgren Connect is a truly exciting new collection for the Australian market, addressing the needs of busy people who need their personal tech to remain functioning at optimal levels throughout the day and night, wherever their work or play takes them.

“This is a unique range with multiple features, smart design and clever solutions for a digital life on the go. The collection looks as good as it performs, and is expected to sell well in Australia’s urban hubs through major retailer David Jones, plus independent luggage stores,’ says Weston.
