Since Hiroshi Fujiwara launched RAMIDUS in 2019, the multi-hyphenate visionary has released a bevy of collaborations between the daily accessories imprint and his flagship brand, fragment design. After releasing a selection of pouch-sized bags in January, the designer has returned with a series of jointly-crafted tote bags from his two labels.
Inside the Spring/Summer 2023 capsule, fragment and RAMIDUS introduce three iterations of colorful carriers, each of which dons the emblematic white logo tape strap that has appeared on every collaboration between the two imprints. Made in four colors — light blue, pink, gray and beige — the collection includes three different sizes: the LL size ( ¥10,450 JPY), which is intended for travel, the large size (¥9,350 JPY), most suitable for the office, and the medium size ( ¥8,030 JPY), for on-the-go. Notably, the handle features a two-way specification, allowing wearers to style each bag over the shoulder or in a handheld fashion.
Often called “the godfather of streetwear,” Fujiwara has been cited as a cultural influence by artists and designers like Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh. His fragment design logo appears across culture, thanks to an impressive roster of collaborators, which, in the past, have included brands like Pokemon, Maserati, Moncler, Levi’s, Beats by Dre, and Louis Vuitton, to name a few. Notably, in 2020, fragment also joined forces with Hypebeast for a collection of elevated essentials.
The collaborative collection will be available to purchase beginning Friday, April 14, on RAMIDUS’ webstore and at the RAMIDUS Tokyo store. Take a look at the collection in the gallery above.
