JEAN-PAUL LESPAGNARD x EASTPAK
Jean-Paul Lespagnard is an intriguing talent to behold, based in Brussels, the designer is quietly building his irreverent and imaginative ready to wear brand into a strong global business, with the help of Ann Chapelle who has financed fashion heavyweights such Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann.
Seventh Man were invited to Brussels to witness and report back Jean-Paul’s latest collaboration with Eastpak. Previous Belgian Eastpak collaborators include Raf Simons and Walter Van Bierendonck as part of their Artist Studio initiative, which invites artists to transform their bags in limited edition collections.
This collaboration which launched at concept store STIJL is a nifty 4 piece collection, two in black and two in purple, the shoulder straps of one of the black styles comes with a purple embroidery and vice versa for one of the purple styles. A definite must have for the stylish utilitarian globetrotter.
Along with Stijl, the bags will also be available from now at some of the best stores around the globe who also conveniently stock Jean-Paul’s namesake line including Selfridges, IT Hong Kong, Corso Como Milano and Seoul and Galaries Lafayette.
