Onitsuka Tiger is making a strong foray into apparel and accessories this season. The classic footwear maker is sticking with a very strong indigo denim theme, which can be seen across a number of garments and shoes, and also on the interesting backpack and waistbag seen here. The backpack is modeled on the extremely popular classic mountaineering design, which seems to be a must this year – it’s a flap top bag, with compression straps and extra pockets. The waist bag is also quite the emerging trend; a number of Japanese labels are including what is pejoratively referred to as the “fanny pack.” Onitsuka updates it with a fuller, more rugged silhouette. Both bags are done in an attractive deep indigo denim, and feature nice chocolate leather bottoms; the aesthetic appeal is cemented together though by the white accents: seen in edge piping, zippers, and compression straps. A really interesting and successful attempt at bridging the mountaineering equipment and workwear trends. Both pieces are available now from SNS. Check out images of both bags after the jump.
