The Profits from These New EASTPAK Carriers Go Towards AIDS Research

Just a short while ago, a new EASTPAK collaborative design was released with Vetements and artist Demna Gvasalia, who supplied a simple black bag with oversized crossed straps -- which emulated the appearance of the ribbon that symbolizes the solidarity of those living with AIDS.

Now, a number of other artist-made carriers have been released, with each boasting its own unique look. While one is covered in silver and blue sequins, another features bold yarn tassels all over a pocket. Additionally, a selection of the new EASTPAK bags are inspired by animals or monsters, with vibrant fuzzy material constructing them. Those wishing to purchase the one-of-a-kind carriers can find them online, where they'll be auctioned -- with proceeds going towards 'Designers Against AIDS.'
