We do love a backpack that is both cool looking and utilitarian. The Givenchy Multi-pocket Backpack is the answer,  made from soft leather with signature Obsedia clasp. The craftsmanship will appeal to both young and older generations and it’s ideal for multi-use, whether that be in the City or for traveling.

OKI-NI X Nowartt X Master-Piece Collaboration

Next Thursday 6th February sees the launch of a great new collaboration between oki-ni, Nowartt & Master-Piece, releasing a stylish and rugged new backpack and tote bag.

.

History

Nowartt is a Japanese textile and graphic label created by designer and art director Toyoki Adachi. Nowartt stands for “now art textile = timeless modern art – / no war textile = peaceful art”. Nowartt graphics are widely used by major fashion brands, sports apparel brands and for outdoor apparel and accessory brands. Nowartt combines heritage and modern arts.

Master-Piece is renowned for creating outstanding luggage and accessories that “fuse design and function at high-level”. The brand was founded in Osaka in 1994 by Taichi Fujimatsu, who is behind state of the art design and the use of cutting edge technical fabrics.

Collaboration

Since oki-ni visited Nowartt’s design studio in Tokyo, the graphic design house have developed a series of prints that were inspired by the extra-terrestrial setting of oki-ni’s AW12 Video – The LaunchWith this brief, they created two colourful prints that repeat familiar Nowartt themes of flora and fauna. As you would expect, both the Backpack and the Tote Bag are hand-crafted by Master-Piece to exacting standards, using luxurious leather, hardwearing Cordura nylon and soft-suede.

Timberland & Christopher Raeburn SS14

Christopher Raeburn’s is renowned for working with sustainable fabrics and for his holistic approach to design. For his SS14 show at London Collections: MEN, he chose to partner with Timberland for their footwear, a company that has similar ethical views. Many would agree that the Timberland boot is a staple to many a man’s wardrobe, and recognised as a global outdoor lifestyle brand.

Raeburn’s collection was inspired by the stoic men of World War Two’s Long Range Desert Group, and driven by the development and utilisation of textiles – including re-purposed surplus military fabrics. Timberland’s ‘The Earthkeepers Adventure Cupsole Chukka’ is built with leather from a Silver-rated tannery and sits on a sole made from recycled plastic bottles. Using Timberland technology, this modern take on a classic ensures a comfortable fit, breathable and is environmentally conscious.

Andy Hewat, Country Manager for Timberland UK & Ireland elaborates “Christopher Raeburn is a very talented designer and we are excited and honoured that he has chosen our Earthkeeper Adventure Cupsole Chukka for his Spring/Summer 2014 show. Christopher’s pioneering work to publicise sustainability mirrors our ethical stance and dedication to equip people to make a difference in their world”

We’re pleased to share with you a video interview with Christopher Raeburn, during his London Collections MEN SS14 show.
