Bag brand HEX and street fashion legend Alyasha Owerka-Moore have teamed up to create a duo of travel bags with a vintage essence. The collection is inspired by classic luggage and trunks and the idea of re-imaging a vintage travel vibe in today’s style luggage.
“I have always been a fan of train travel. Whether taking the train up and down the east coast to skate competitions when I was younger, or around southern California now, it’s something that’s always been a part of who I am. I have an affinity for vintage train cases from the 20’s and 30’s and felt like it would be rad to work with HEX to create a modern take on this kind of vintage travel gear,” says Moore.
The HEX x Alyasha Owerka-Moore Collaboration Collection includes a backpack and duffel that features a water resistant tan/brown tweed exterior with brown coated canvas accents and brown heritage logo lining. Accessibility and durability are stressed with leather zipper pulls, antique brass hardware, hide-away/detachable straps, multiple pockets and padded storage for laptops. Speaking about the new collection Dan Maravilla, co-founder of HEX said, “It’s always great when we get to work with pioneers and innovators, like Alysha, his eye for detail and personal style are amazing, and we think these products really showcase these things well.
You can pick up the backpack and duffle at HEX’s online shop now for $129.95 USD and $179.95 USD respectively.
