Haversack is the creation of a Japanese designer Koji Norihide and was founded in Japan in 1998. Haversack is readily available in Japan, and has a flagship store in Tokyo but is currently only stocked in a handful of places in Europe.
The name Haversack is taken from the bag used by the American army made of linen and wool as a substitute for leather. It was recognised for its strength and durability. The concept of the label is to be a contemporary collection which places great emphasis on detail that always works back to the military themes at its heart.
Through a seriously taken design process that pays complete attention to the cut of the garment, the result is a strong modern silhouette. Natural fabrics like linen and cotton are used to add a richer texture and give an aged look and feel to the garment.
Spring/Summer 2010 is available now at Oki-Ni, enabling everyone a chance to access the great knitwear and more.
