RAF SIMONS X EASTPAK SS20 COLLECTION
“The tenth chapter of a long standing partnership”
Eastpak and Raf Simons celebrate their long-standing relationship with a new collection, marking the tenth chapter of their collaboration.
The three-style collection reinvents Eastpak’s Padded Doubl’r backpack and introduces two versatile new designs, the Waist Loop bag, and the Pocketbag Loop bag. Each multifunctional style features detachable pockets and Raf Simons’ signature metal ring details.
The collection introduces seven colorways that feature graphics and slogans referencing Simons’ homecoming to his “own private Antwerp” from “stoned America”. Simons pays tribute to the city where his design dream first began as he reflects on his roots in youth and subculture.
To translate this collection visually, Eastpak and Raf Simons teamed up with renowned photographer Serge Leblon. Leblon – famous for creating cinematic moods using colors and lights – offers a distinctive photographic narrative of contemporary life that is at once unsparing and tender, familiar yet mysterious.
RS PADDED DOUBL’R – Eastpak’s classic backpack is reimagined with Raf Simons’ signature metal loop details and two detachable front pockets. This fully-functional day pack is fitted with a padded tech sleeve, internal pocket, and a padded back panel and shoulder straps. Available in White Star, Red Star, Purple Quote, and Beige America colorways, each of the removable front pockets features different graphics and prints.
RS POCKETBAG LOOP – This versatile bag lets you wear your belongings using the four detachable pockets, each featuring different graphics and Raf Simons’ recognizable metal rings. Built with padded shoulder straps for a comfy all-day carry, the Pocketbag Loop is available in Antwerp, Quote, and Garden colorways.
RS WAIST LOOP – This multifunctional mini bag features two detachable pockets and Raf Simons’ signature metal ring details. The padded waist belt can be adjusted to suit your style and each of the detachable pockets features different graphics. The Waist Loop bag is available in White Star and Beige America.
