Earlier in the year, Oakley signed Eric Koston to their skate team further solidifying an already stellar team. As part of this amazing signing, Oakley will be releasing product influenced by the legendary skater beginning this Holiday season.
For the initial release, Koston hit the Oakley design lab to provide some valuable insight and design ideas, which were utilized to create three unique pieces: a rugged ballistic nylon backpack in all black; a simple and handy military inspired daypack; and a pair of wood grain Oakley Frogskins.
The ballistic nylon backpack possesses all the features needed to carry around the goods with functional compartments for your laptop and any other things you need for life on the go. Its spacious capacity is masked by all black styling giving the bag a slim and serious look. Textured synthetic leather can be found throughout the exterior and the interior features a grey and black wood grain print, which is found throughout this collection. Subtle Square O branding as well as the newly designed EK logo are tastefully placed as to not distract from the simplicity of the bag.
The military inspired daypack is about as simple as it gets without sacrificing functionality. A standard rectangular shape comprised of a sturdy canvas and high quality synthetic, tumbled leather sums up its outer makeup with the grey wood grain print adorning the inner lining. A drawstring closing system a top the main compartment makes it easy to pack and seal it in and a simple snap front pouch in the front adds a bit more storage space.
Now, last, but not least, are the special edition Frogskins. The striking wood grain pattern used in both bags is found prominently on these sunglasses accompanied by dark grey lenses. Another interesting feature found is the texture itself, which feels as if someone whittled a piece of wood into these amazing frames. A pouch bearing the same print and EK logo round it out for what promises to be one of the most sought after Frogskins of the year. More on this collaboration very soon.
