After dropping off its latest take on Danner’s Mountain Light Boot, Japanese outdoor style imprint MEANSWHILE is back with a brand new bag capsule alongside Master-Piece for the SS20 season. Aligning the pieces towards functional underpinnings, the range sees a Daypack, Split Luggage Vest, and a compact Sacoche bag coming into play.
Made primarily of lightweight and waterproof Pertex Shield textiles, the various all-black pieces are engineered to endure the toughest of climates. The Daypack features a minimalistic aesthetic that’s been retrofitted with a removable pouch at the front, which can also be used as a standalone side bag. The Split Luggage Vest is a contemporary twist on classic fisherman vests, with three components attached by rugged and adjustable nylon straps, as well as two flap pockets near the shoulders and two large waterproof zip pockets near the waist. The collection is finished off by a Sacoche bag, which features three zipped compartments and can be attached directly onto the front of the Split Luggage Vest or the Daypack. Finishing off the pieces is various branding from both brands that can be found on both the exterior and interior of each item.
Take a detailed look at MEANSWHILE x Master-Piece’s bag capsule above. The items are priced between ¥18,000 JPY and ¥32,000 JPY (approximately $160 to $290 USD) and are currently available at MEANSWHILE’s webstore.
