Raf Simon’s arrival to the New York fashion world was one the most hyped fashion moments in recent history, not only because of his double-tenure at the recently re-branded Calvin Klein, but because of the Belgian designer’s steady descent into the realm of fashion gods (one strong sign: archival pieces beginning to circulate heavily among fashion connoisseurs). Yet in all the chaos and confusion, did you miss the crucial and most desirable details: the bags?Eastpak x Raf Simons V is the fifth rendition of the collaboration between the designer and the American bag producer, who has become a favorite in fashion circles for their long-standing devotion to collaborating with vanguard designers and artists. Using washed nylon, rich canvas, full-grain leather and satin, Simons elegantly reinterprets Eastpak’s classic designs without compromising his vision for the re-located Raf man. Lesson? Always remember to look at the model’s behind!
