Essentials: Michael Lau
One of Asia’s most recognizable illustrators, Michael Lau, links up with Hypebeast to continue our ever popular Essentials series. Known for his ingenious vinyl toy creations and imaginative collaborations with the likes of Nike, the Hong Kong resident spills the contents of his pockets, showcasing a range of believable everyday toting goods. Of course as an artist Lau carries around a set square, flash drive and his latest toy release inspired by Terry Richardson, but he continues with an array of luxury products from a Hermes Coin Pouch to keys for his Mercedes-Benz 230GE. We know it may not stack up to what seems to be the fan favorite, Ben Baller, but this Essentials collection is certainly functional and unostentatious.
