EASTPAK is new to us for Autumn Winter ’18, and with it comes some amazing collaborative collections with the likes of Raf Simon and MSGM.
Eastpak have been making canvas bags for over 65 years, and started out with one customer; the US Army. Like with many things, it was the college kids who took them to the next level after they started carrying their book around campus in these US army men’s bags.
They were the first accessory brand to add bright colours and prints to their canvas bags, kicking starting a revolution in men’s accessories. In the 90s they decided it was a good idea to whack some wheels on their holdalls so that we could all get around train stations and on escalators easier. Wise choice Eastpak.
It wasn’t until 2004 that they started their now infamous collab collections. Over the years they’ve paired with everyone and anyone, from Jean Paul Gaultier and Raf Simons to artists and creatives in their Artist Studio. This year we’ve got both the Raf Simons as well as the highly sought-after collection with MSGM.
