It’s all about the details. John Smedley, Hiroshi Fujiwara’s preferred shirt brand, is well aware of this, as the British brand’s Japanese arm has recruited PORTER for a pair of travel-friendly cases ideal for storing delicate knitwear while on the go.
Compactable and compatible with conventional garment racks, the bags offer plenty of storage space for clothing and essentials alike, with a clever design that allows the user to extend the case in one simple motion. Two internal “shelves” allow for four normal-sized knits to sit comfortably in each olive or navy case, with more room offered inside the zippered pouches that the bags fold into. PORTER’s sturdy nylon ensures the bags are tough enough for constant travel and breathable enough to encourage air flow throughout.
The collaborative cases launch on John Smedley Japan’s web store on April 28 for ¥16,000 JPY (approximately $150 USD).
