Raf Simons and luxe brand Eastpak draw inspiration from the futuristic and dystopian universe of Blade Runner in their Spring/Summer 2018 sci-fi backpack collaboration. The bag line "fuses post-industrial designs with alternative Asian street styles." The product has been created with the city dweller in mind with dark colorways, rich functionality features and easily accessible compartments.

Keeping up with Ridley Scott's cinematic cyber-punk aesthetic, the Raf Simons and Eastpak collaboration boasts canvas, metal detailing, as well as PVC. A highlight of the sci-fi backpack collection is a fully PVC-encapsulated bag with a pink custom lining and Chinese character detailing. Additionally, the line reaches product diversity with a premium special addition black canvas duffel with interchangeable carry handles, that is minimalist and utilitarian in appearance.
