Editor’s Notes: Earlier this year, after we spotted Takashi Murakami sporting a custom side bag at Paris Fashion week, the artist confirmed to Highsnobiety he was working on a bag collaboration with PORTER. Now we finally have our first look at the full capsule collection.
A ruck sack, 2-way helmet bag and waist bag come in light green nylon (similar to the fabric used on the collaborative sneaker drop). The items all feature exaggerated Murakami-style flowers and several PORTER branding patches throughout.
It seems we can always count on the happiest man in fashion to delivered joyful statement pieces. Murakami manages to infuse streetwear with giddy, playful imagination each time, and this capsule is no different.
