THE 'COLLABORATION' BAG BY HERON PRESTON X OFF-WHITE™
As the name emphasizes, the Collaboration bag is the joint effort between Heron Preston and Off-White™. A concept carryall or, as they describe it, a “living hybrid,” that incorporates both designers’ curiosity and drive to explore and reinvent industrial elements. With a play on transparencies and materials, cut-out details, signature graphics and bright orange accents, the tote comes with a bi-colored strap that is a fusion of Off-White™’s graphic yellow Weight Securing System strap and Preston’s signature orange band featuring the word “Style” in Russian. All topped off with industrial hardware such as metal nuts that secure the orange leather straps.
“Heron Preston’s ability to think without limits comes to life in this bag we created together,” says Off-White™’s Virgil Abloh. “The mix of materials combined with the Off-White™ DNA lead to a final product that suggests a different idea of a “handbag.”
