NEIGHBORHOOD, the Japanese streetwear brand founded in 1994, by Shinsuke Takizawa has teamed up with Boston-based bag manufacturer, Eastpak for a special collection of military-inspired bags.
NEIGHBORHOOD’s Shinsuke Takizawa is known for his love of the military aesthetic and his latest collaboration with Eastpak reflects this, with a collection of tough, minimalistic and military-toned bags.
The two labels have delivered a collection of four bags in a muted military palette of black and olive shades, showcased in an austere Lookbook (below).
Highlights of the collection include the “NBHD Padded” pack is a reinterpretation of Eastpak’s popular Pak’r backpack, branded with “The Filth and the Fury”, a headline that vilified the Sex Pistols punk band back in 1977.
The “NBHD Vest Bag” cottons on to the techwear trend with a chest rig-like cargo rife with pockets for your EDC.
The shoulder straps and dystopian look of this pack fuses contemporary ‘warcore’ fashion and function.
Meanwhile “NBHD The One” is an update on Eastpak’s The One shoulder bag, featuring a minimalist aesthetic that filters through the entire collection.
The “NBHD Sling” is a retake on Eastpak’s Talky waist bag, featuring fashionable adjustable straps to fit in with the techwear meets militaria style.
NEIGHBORHOOD x Eastpak is expected to drop in Eastpak’s webstore October 1st.
Takizawa is featured in an interview discussing the collection below:
