The luscious pastel Jean Paul Gaultier X Eastpak collaboration is coming to stores in April. Start saving now!
If backpack mavericks Eastpak make you think of Travis Birkenstock and his baggy trousered skater cronies in Clueless, you haven’t seen the new Eastpak X Jean Paul Gaultier collab. Having first joined forces for the fourth edition of Eastpak Artist Studio in support of Designers Against AIDS (following in the footsteps of Raf Simon and Walter Van Beirendonck), whilst JPG is renowned for extravagance, this new collection is surprisingly pared back.
Think lush pastel tones with trademark overstitched Breton stripes. Here, simplicity, functionality and wearability are paramount. The limited edition lines dropped exclusively in Selfridges in February, but those of us who aren’t on the Forbes list can bag a bargain from the main line stores come April. Backpack’s back, alright!
