The ongoing collaboration between Beams and Head Porter recently included a briefcase as part of their 5th anniversary. Suitable for spring and summer, the bag is made from canvas with special treatments. Though it looks like leather in the pictures, a hand rubbed treatment was used to achieve this look. “The fabric of “FREE STYLE” has a unique texture of the contraction which is made by the piece-dyed high-density canvas #10 with clear polyurethane pressure bonding. Every piece was finished by hand-rubbing to make the leather-like texture. The artisan skill is one of the characteristics of this series.” More to come on high profile collabos from Beams x Head Porter.
