Yuta Hosokawa’s READYMADE label has been steadily establishing itself as the leader in upcycling vintage fabrics by creating new renditions of classic silhouettes using military pieces. The brand’s “destruction is also creation” motto runs true in its latest piece where vintage United States postal bags got taken apart to create these new small shoulder canvas bags, reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s classic Amazone bags. Heavy duty hardware, leather linings and suede trips finish off the premium pieces that will no doubt look better over time with wear. Lastly, those that want a different option to READYMADE’s usual dark olive works will be pleased to find a lighter, faded green canvas offering.
The READYMADE Small Shoulder Canvas Bag is now available at select stockists like Selfridges for £1,240 GBP. Yuta Hosokawa recently made a trip to Hong Kong where we caught up with him to check out his Essentials.
