Last week Eastpak launched the 2013 edition of ‘Eastpak Artist Studio', a charity project that gives artists from all over the world the opportunity to create their own version of Eastpak's Padded Pak'r® model. The bag is like a blank canvas on which they will experiment and express their creativity. Check out the project's promo and have a look at these creative minds in action! This is the third edition of the project and we had already seen the participation of more than 150 artists from all over the world. This year there are 56 participants and they are from13 different countries. For instance, Reuven Cohen, one of the leading and most prominent stylists in Israel, created his own Padded Pak'r® for the 2013 edition.
My favourite creation? I really don't know, they are more than one for sure, like David Gouni (France), Athos Burez (Belgium), and Mimi Nizan (Netherlands). There is also an Italian artist I really like this year, he is No Curves and, obviously, his creation is a triangular Eastpak bag without a single curve, pretty awesome!
We are extremely happy to be the beneficiary for the second year running of such an interesting and stimulating project- you read that right, all proceeds of Eastpak Artist Studio goes to Designers Against AIDS. Thus, with buying one of these amazing and unique pieces you know you will also help us in developing new creative ways to spread HIV awareness. Have a look on Eastpak's website and have fun finding your favourite bag!
