Mirror images of the recent trends found on Tokyo’s streets – calculated juxtapositions of modern technical gears with goods from Old World craftsmen, White Mountaineering‘s Yosuke Aizawa further elaborates this dynamic styling with his spin off label, White Mountaineering BLK. As the centerpiece for the label’s Spring and Summer 2010 Collection, the BLK PORTER Vesuvio Backpack exemplify Aizawa’s concepts.
Constructed entirely out of ballistic nylon, the BLK PORTER Vesuvio (named after the volcano Mount Vesuvius) followed the silhouettes of older mountain backpacks. But where as its predecessors stored camping equipments and trail snacks, White Mountaineering BLK., with the help of Yoshida & Co., designed the bulk of Vesuvio for the modern nomads. Urban movers & shakers could compartmentalized their lifestyles accordingly from laptop sleeve to cellphone pack. There is even an easy access sleeve for the occasional note jotting.
