Balancing a nostalgic historical sense with radical modernism is KRISVANASSCHE‘s forte, and it’s a skill the designer brings to his latest work with EASTPAK. With multipurpose use in mind, the Spring/Summer 2013 EASTPAK by KRISVANASSCHE collection consists of two backpacks, an attaché case, bowling bag, messenger, carry case and pouch that can be transformed in multiple ways. And, in keeping with KRISVANASSCHE’s unique design sensibilities, the bags bridge the gap between city and sportswear, with fabrics ranging from structured twill 100% nylon to soft grey marl jersey. Zip string and elastic details throughout conjure up images of climbing ropes, adding a touch of the outdoors, while black leather binding and rubber reinforcements infuse the collection with hard-wearing, yet sophisticated elements.
A selection from the EASTPAK by KRISVANASSCHE Spring/Summer 2013 collection is available now at our online store.
