Japanese brand NEIGHBORHOOD joins forces with the bag experts over at Eastpak on a range of padded military-inspired bags. The collection consists of four bags constructed of nylon and satin, each of which features co-branded graphics, and the expression "The Filth and the Fury."
The standout piece of the collection is undoubtedly the vest bag which plays on the ongoing chest rig trend and features two zip-fastening front compartments and two Velcro back pockets. A reflective stripe and co-branded taping and plastic quick-release buckles round off the design.
When asked about why he wanted to work with Eastpak, NEIGHBORHOOD founder Shinsuke Takizawa shared: "Eastpak is recognized to be an iconic brand in its category. So when NEIGHBORHOOD wanted to add its creative touch in the product, it became a natural fit. We also have some similar roots/points of reference, such as a link to military heritage."
Explaining the phrase ""The Filth and the Fury," Takizawa shared, "When Punk & Rock culture appeared in the '70s, the media and the newspapers used this phrase a lot. When I was into motorcycle culture, I was really inspired by punk/rock movements and culture. This is a phrase I really liked and hung on to, and it somehow became a natural fit with the NEIGHBORHOOD brand, and its image."
