COLLABORATION FASHION. Eastpak and MM6 Maison Margiela together imagined the perfect couture backpack, which takes us back to the middle school years.
Wednesday 8 a.m., Technology with Mr. B. 9 a.m., French with Mrs. F .. 11 a.m., German with Mrs. P .. Between two classes, Mohamed and Sacha think they are Zidane in the playground while Doriane, Isaure and Anna grab a package of Skittles to distributor. Welcome to the daily life of college students at the start of the 00’s.
Their official uniform? A pair of Puma, DDP jeans and an Eastpak backpack, worn super low on the buttocks please. Over the years, this it bag d’adolescent was covered with Tipex, inscriptions and drawings strewn on the canvas (preferably black) haphazardly. More talented than us in terms of styling, the teams of MM6 Maison Margiela have also customized the bag Eastpak on the occasion of a collaboration available from October 15, 2021.
Back to school with Eastpak x MM6 Maison Margiela
The luxury house has reinterpreted five models of Eastpak bags including the classic Padded Pak’r and the Springer banana. Available in blue, black, white and red, these it pieces are for some reversible and sell for between 100 and 210 euros. The MM6 Maison Margiela placket is found in the faded stitching, the split labels or even the red thread of the collection, l’inside out/l’upside down.
This is not the first time that Eastpak has entrusted its bags to a fashion brand. Jean Paul Gaultier, Raf Simons, Ami and even the Kith concept store have already had the opportunity to reinvent this classic.
