In 2012 Eastpak teamed up with the Istituto Europeo di Design (Milan) to create the “Bag in Town” Design Competition. The aim of the competition was to inspire young designers to rethink the relationship between the bag, the owner and their environment. Over 400 bag designed were submitted, Amen Studio’s prototype was selected as one of the 6 finalists, which gave them the chance to develop a complete line with Eastpak.
The Pur Sang X Eastpak Limited Edition Collection gives new meaning to the notion of life in the city. Combining a simplicity of use with the beauty of exclusive premium materials, these limited edition items adapt to your needs as you go.
“We believe that the ideal backpack has to adapt to any situation.”
The collection consists of the sophisticated and functional “AStonish” backpack, the “FASter” tablet sleeve, “AweSome” which is an interchangeable backpack/shoulder bag and my personal favourite, the spacious “SmAShing” city backpack. Each is crafted from high-quality top-coated twill fabric, with leather details and metallic trim in striking dark tones. Each is also lined with geometric patterning and are also numbered 1/100.
