COMME des GARÇONS‘ founder and designer Rei Kawakubo loves her FREITAG bags – courtesy of Markus and Daniel Freitag’s sustainable bag manufacturer – so she had to share the love, enlisting the label for the collaborative and highly functional “Holidays with FREITAG” collection. Uniting over shared values and design inspirations, the pair has officially lifted the curtain on a limited-edition collection of upcycled bags.
Designed by Kawakubo, the offering includes five new upcycled bags, manufactured in Japan and crafted solely out of used truck tarpaulins. Check out the vibrant range in the gallery above, and find the full list of pricing included below.
“We, as CDG, have always enjoyed the meeting of minds and creative values, where the result of the coming together is greater than the sum of its parts. I have been using FREITAG for many years.They were amongst the first to deeply address the recycling and sustainability issues the world faces today,” shared CDG President Adrian Joffe.
