South Korean street wear brand CRITIC factors in the mobility of our 21st Century lives and harmonizes it with the practicality of the modern utility vehicle. Appropriately dubbed the “Critical Supply” collection, eight smartly designed carry-alls are paired with their metallic muse and spotlighted in CRITIC’s clean-cut lookbook. Like a smart (car) thing, the CR2 daypack can hold your XBOX 360 and then some. Like a cube, the CSQ backpack fits your laptop, books, and other paper goods in perfect form. And like a wrangler, the C5 rucksack stores your outdoor gear, camera, journals, munchies, and necessary toiletries with better accessibility than any four-wheeled SUV can promise you.
Although freshly new to our radar (as seen by our previous post a few weeks ago), CRITIC‘s Critical Supply collection indicates more than just a fashion label riding on a wave of good grace. Vintage-style products composed of 100% waterproof cotton canvas explore the novel idea of staple goods gone chic. If CRITIC continues its successful rise, we may just find men becoming bag fiends like the ladies– shit’s bound to happen fasho.
