Another collaboration made in designer heaven, Eastpak x Raf Simons
In childhood and adolescence, we all had an eastpak backpack. Mine was faithful to me for many years, enduring my ill-treatment and every time I threw her to the ground.
After a few years, I just got disconnected from my backpack and lost track to the brand. Now, some news caught my attention for including a designer that I like a lot, Raf Simons.
The first Eastpak x Raf Simons collaboration debuted at this year’s New York Fashion Week. The theme: “pragmatic luxury”.
The Belgian designer used high quality materials like canvas, washed nylon and full-grain leather to create a luxury take on Eastpak’s traditionally hard-wearing output.
The collaboration consists of three backpacks and a duffel bag and is now available in stores. The designer said that he took inspiration from his new home town of New York as well as his continuing interest in youth culture.
