If you’re looking for a weekend getaway to warmer climates before the Christmas rush and need a travel bag, look no further than the offerings from this collaboration between Stone Island and Porter, who celebrate their 80th anniversary this year.
It’s 80 years since iconic Japanese accessories label Porter delivered their first collection and to celebrate the milestone Porter have opened their archive to some of the world’s premiere designers and luxury labels. One of which is Italian label Stone Island.
Stone Island were asked to reinvent three of Porter’s signature pieces. The terrace label chose to re-craft Porter’s signature backpack, messenger bag and Boston holdall to give it the Stone Island treatment.
Constructed from Stone Island’s sturdy, incredibly lightweight metallic polyurethane resin-coated cotton, all three possess Stone Island’s signature functionality aesthetic while still keeping a Porter luxury essence.
The polyurethane coating on the cotton renders with a suede-like texture in a soft shade of ice Grey. While they look great, the bags’ construction means they’re also durable enough to withstand everyday work use as well as travels abroad.
Our favourite in the collection is the Stone Island X Porter 80th Anniversary Backpack for £425. The lightweight piece features adjustable side straps, a large front pocket with zip closure and padded shoulder straps for optimum comfort. Perfect for a holiday!
The full Porter x Stone Island 80th Anniversary capsule collection is available now from various outlets including Flannels where the messenger bag and holdall are priced from £295.
