Those who know me well, know how strong I feel about Rick Owens influence over fashion today, and probably more importantly, tomorrow. This collaboration has been eagerly awaited, and is now available online at Oki-Ni.

This season Eastpak unveils its most innovative collaboration to date in collaboration with Paris based Californian native Rick Owens via his denim label, DRKSHDW. This is the first official co-brand Rick Owens has taken with any of his lines.

The DRKSHDW Eastpak collection delivers a choice of bags, accessories and capes with clean, crisp silhouettes that are finished to a worn, luxe-life perfection.

The range delivers 11 styles of top coated nylon, dry stonewash finished, made using a revolutionary welding technique in a choice of three colourways taken from the DRKSHDW palette; Dark Shadow (black), Dust ( a soft, warm grey) and Pearl ( a light ‘optimistic’ tone).

This collection is truly unique and innovative; pieces have been produced without traditional sewn stitching and use a revolutionary welding technique that gives a distinct streamlined look. All items have been dry stone washed to give a naturally worn-in texture and each item in the line is accessorised with a DRKSHDW lanyard and coin purse.
