NEIGHBORHOOD and EASTPAK Turn a Bag into a Vest With Latest Collaboration
Further expanding their own universe of accessories, NEIGHBORHOOD further fine-tunes its arrangement of bags with the assistance of EASTPAK, a label known for crafting equally expansive collaborative sets with the likes of UNDERCOVER, White Mountaineering and many others.
Dressed either in olive or black, the Japanese brand’s signature militaristic ethos shines through along a platform filled to the brim in total utility. Some simple and others heaps more complex, the set piece starts slow with a standard two compartment design: while its structure is largely familiar to the masses, its accents are far from ordinary with yellow taping contrasting at each edge and type-adorned tags spelling out “THE FILTH AND THE FURY.” Two much smaller accompaniments, as more everyday and casual everyday carries, take up waist and side bag templates kept on theme through the same aforementioned modifications. A much newer and more adventurous take for both partners, the duo have brought the function to form with a vest fusing the idea of trending chest rigs and fashion iconic bulletproof vests. Striping adds what seems to be reflective detailing to the front half with its two massive pockets staying minimal, ornamented by white iconography on black backdrops and one tonal cobranded patch.
