Dr Romanelli x UNITE   Hickory Backpacks
Fans of Dr. Romanelli might have gotten a hint of his work for Massachusetts-based boutique UNITE with the Underground Railroad Varsity Jacket for the in-house Heritage label, but the partnership is in full swing with this collection of backpacks. The good doctor created a collection of one-off backpacks, which incorporate a full range of materials seen in past Romanelli projects. The materials worked in represent an entire century’s worth of textiles: 1910’s Japanese Boro denim, 1940’s Hickory ticking, jean jackets from the 1960’s, Military tent canvas from the 1970’s, flannels from the 1980’s, and of course plenty of the signature Romanelli butter-soft leather. The bags are finished with Riri zippers, another Romanelli signature. Each is absolutely unique, and the collection will be available exclusively at UNITE over the next few days. Check out the full collection after the jump. via: DrX.
