What’s Hot ; The Backpack by Manolo Blahnik

2014 saw the return of the back pack in a huge way across the world so here is a clever idea from  global lifestyle brand Eastpak  who have just launched its Eastpak Artist Studio, which brings together some of the world’s most talented and creative minds to lend their interpretation to the iconic Eastpak Padded Pak®.

 BackPak +The Look

They have gone to the world’s top designers and given the task of “customizing” a special edition blank Eastpak backpack.  Artworks by the first 3 artists – KRJST, Manolo Blahnik and Walter Van Beirendonck – can now be viewed online t http://artiststudio.eastpak.com/.

 

More artist creations including Jean Paul Gaultier’s take on Eastpak’s iconic Padded Pak’r® will be released every week from now on and the products will be available through an online auction on December 1st, 2014with all proceeds being donated to Designers Against Aids, to raise awareness about HIV/AIDs.
