Watching young design firms continue to output great product is what keeps the HS staff happy. In house favorite, Public School does that (again) by teaming up with Rkives NYC, in creating two new bags for the coming Spring/Summer 08 markets.

Founded by bag designer (and former Akademiks staffer), Sean Ziran, Rkives NYC is an exclusive modern vintage bag collection hand crafted in New York City. Each bag by Rkives is handmade by the designer himself.

Rkives’s Tote and Duffle Bags produced for Public School, use the finest hardware and fabrics for production: Zizi Italian Zippers, detachable keyrings, and heavy cotton hounds-tooth black and white fabric.

Both the Tote and Duffle are available exclusively via Fred Segal (LA), Memes (NYC), and Arrive (MIA) in a very low run of 30 bags. Its about quality.
