High Fashion Accessories for Jet-Setters by Raf Simons for Eastpak

What better way to revamp a dated brand than to get cool Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons involved? That is just what rucksack giant Eastpak has done for three seasons, and Raf has done a brilliant job with the Raf Eastpak collection. Not a bad idea.

I would love to own one of these large hobo bags and oversized rucksacks, which come in cool indigo blue denim and metallic silver with leather bases. The bags have lots of elegant details such as an id window, metal zips, adjustable shoulder straps, buckles, and a lovely natural leather handle on the side.

These futuristic pieces of ‘haute’ travel items are of course produced in strictly limited editions to keep the fashion-conscious audience on their toes. The prices hover around £310.00 a bag. I give a big thumbs up to this designer collaboration!
