New York-Based designers Sarah Frances Kuhn (SFK) and Meredith Wendell are teaming up to bring a little bit more fashion into the world of photography. Only their fashion accessories won’t be displayed on a model standing in front of your camera, they’ll be keeping your camera securely attached to you.

The two designers have joined forces to create a new limited-edition run of colorful, fashionable (and also expensive) camera straps that are made from climbing rope, italian leather, polished chain and plaid.

SFK has been making these sorts of straps for a while, but this limited edition collaboration with Wendell won’t last long. Each strap was handmade by putting together materials that Wendell discarded while making fashion accessories of her own.

The straps are available for everything from point-and-shoots to DSLRs, ranging in price from $75 to $125. And for the iPhoneographers among you, lest you feel left out, iPhone wristlets are included among her collaborations as well.
