Week In Review ~ 8 January
An ode to Scotland’s rugged outdoors, adaptable modular carry, and pieces that will help you drop beats in style. Welcome to the Week In Review…
Make tracks with a mountaineering-inspired daypack
Carrying a little bit of the mountains with you wherever you go? Trakke’s latest collaboration is both a salute to outdoor adventure and design inspiration stemming from vintage mountaineering equipment. The limited edition Trakke x Kestin Hare Assynt 17 features menswear label Kestin Hare’s striking Cairngorm Mountain print on dry-finish waxed cotton. Complementing the fabric is sand-colored cotton webbing, stainless steel hardware and leather detailing. An eye-catching nod to Scotland’s beautiful natural landscapes, the pack is also at home in urban environments, with useful features such as an interior laptop sleeve, an interior pocket for valuables, and a quick-access lid pocket.
Revitalized style with on-the-move modularity
Black Ember deliver a fresh look for the new year with their Gen03 Spring 2017 collection. Available in an attractive Olive colorway, the collection includes the 25L Citadel Pack, the 30L Holdall Msngr, and the 30L TL3 Pack. Also available for SS17 is the Citadel/DSLR Photo-Kit, featuring a combination of the Black Ember DSLR Case and Citadel Pack. The weatherproof bags are compatible with a range of Gen03 Mods (modular accessories), allowing carry setups to be customized for changing needs. SS17 bags and Mods can be pre-ordered at a discount price now, for shipping in February.
Striking the right note with hard-wearing music carry
If a bag designed to hold records is music to your ears, the 45 Travel Bag will make your carry hit list. Created through a collaboration between Tanner Goods and music label Stones Throw, the bag fits up to 150 45’s and includes two interior and two exterior pockets for storing smaller items. Crafted from 12 oz. mil-spec cotton canvas and English Bridle leather, this handsome piece is built to last and protect the precious contents in style.
Sleek pieces with a DJ spin
Incase have dropped a new collab that blends clean aesthetics and functionality without skipping a beat. Teaming up with DJ and producer Kaskade, the collection features a variety of travel and EDC pieces ranging from the Incase Kaskade Carryon and Incase Kaskade Gig Bag, to phone cases, organizer cases, and a USB light. Understated looks and versatile designs help the pieces adapt to work and play environments. Check out the full Incase Kaskade collection here.
