Accessory manufacturer HEX teams up with artist Cole Gerst on a collection of goods outfitted with Gerst’s signature illustrations. Comprised of nine individual pieces, the collection features various bags, phone cases and tablet covers. Several new silhouettes are added to the brand’s offerings including folios for the iPad Air and iPad mini as well as a Weekender travel bag and tablet envelopes, in addition to popular models like HEX’s Laptop Tote, Origin Backpack and Icon and Focus Cases for the iPhone 5/5s.
The concept for the collection originates from a traditional toile pulled into HEX’s world of music, art, design and architecture. The result was “take your pleasure seriously,” a daydream of leaving life in the city and escaping to the cabin in the woods, relaxing, listening to music and contemplating mystical creatures, geometry and architecture. In addition to the designs, each piece features a durable, water-resistant, heavy premium coated canvas combined with contrasting trims and HEX’s signature surplus-grade cotton web strapping and interior micro-fleece lined pockets. The collaborative collection is available now straight from HEX’s online shop.
