To produce a new ‘Inspired by the world of‘ collaboration, the US backpack specialist Eastpak teamed up with the French ready-to-wear label Paul & Joe to create the Voyageur Collection. The collaboration is inspired by the world of travel and consists a full range of luggage, bags and accessories, decorated with two printed designs created by Paul & Joe.
Sophie Méchaly, Paul & Joe’s founder and designer, is passionate about travelling, and her motto is ‘travelling means opening up to inspiration’. Her adventurous spirit is reflected in the collection’s first series of neo-camo prints, in brown, khaki and lilac. The second motif is instead more feminine, featuring a dark green background on which a riot of pink butterfly figures seems to be about to settle.
The Eastpak x Paul & Joe Voyageur Collection will be available from 1 March 2017 and will include items priced between 30 € for the cultural bags and 200 € for the ‘Tranzshell’, a suitcase with a 360° wheeling system and the ‘Tranverz’, a softer, lighter wheeled travel bag.
