Following its “Classic Bold” capsule seen near the end of December, GREGORY Japan is back with a brand new lineup of functional carrying goods. While embracing its own heritage, the outdoor label has also embedded traditional Japanese sewing techniques to the range — intricate Sashiko-thread detailing over a slew of indigo-toned silhouettes.
The capsule is made up of backpacks, shoulder bags and fanny packs, a commuter bag, an amenity pouch and a rolltop bag — each piece comes with thick brown leather zipper pulls in soft brown suede for a delicate homespun feel. One noteworthy piece is the classic Daypack, emblazoned with a bevy of patchwork motifs. It comes with slightly oxidized metal buckles at the top and bottom of the bag that include adjustable ripstop pulls. Smooth solid blue piping appears along the edges of the main opening as well as the front compartment, while a woven beige “GREGORY” patch logo is placed at the front. Another highlight is a small crossbody pouch that comes with a removable shoulder strap. Like the aforementioned piece, this bag is stamped with a leather patch logo, complemented by silver-toned zippers. Other bags like the rolltop pack, waist pack and amenity pouch round up the concise capsule.
Though no exact release dates have been revealed, GREGORY Japan’s “Sashiko” capsule is expected to arrive at the label’s website this month, starting from $51 USD.
