2010 is becoming an auspicious year for many labels, both contemporary and traditional. Aside from Stussy, Penfield, Dr. Martens, and others, 2010 is marking an important milestone for 2 iconic brands - PORTER and Steiff.
Established not long after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, when members of the Yoshida family distributed canvas bags in assistance of the debris removal, the name PORTER been associated with accessories for the last 75 years. 2010 also marks the 130th anniversary of Steiff, German maker of stuffed animal toys and one credited with the creation of the very first Teddy Bear. (U.S. President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt took the credit for naming it)
As a celebration in the 2 brands' historical accomplishments, both collaborated on a unique project, the PORTER x Steiff Teddy Bear. Hand made in Germany, each black flurry bundle features paws in Emergency Orange, a replica to PORTER's standard issue edition of Black Nylon with Orange Interior. As with all PORTER bags, the brand's familiar logo is stitched on the bear's left rear paw. Included in this special package is a matching PORTER clutch, in the form of a bear face silhouette. With only 50 made in the world, this very exclusive offering is now available at B JIRUSHI YOSHIDA (Bå° YOSHIDA) for a limited time only.
