oki-ni x Master-piece x Nowartt | SS'14 Exclusive Collaboration

Back in November last year we announced that oki-ni would be once again collaborating with bag makers Master Piece and with a little added help from the Japanese print and graphic design studio, Nowartt. On announcing this collaboration we gave you a little look inside the Nowartt studio, courtesy of oki-ni, you can find that post here.

Yesterday seen oki-ni proudly present this new and exclusive collaboration between oki-ni, Tokyo graphic design house Nowartt and the Japanese luggage specialist master-piece. Following on from their AW'12 collaboration between Master-piece x oki-ni x Indigofera, this new series replaces warm Indigofera blankets with expressive prints created by Nowartt, while again using rugged Master-piece bags as the canvas.

Oki-ni asked Nowartt to create a series of prints inspired by the extra-terrestrial setting of their AW'12 video, The Launch. They took their brief as a starting point and then moved beyond it to produce two colourful, expressive prints that incorporated wild horses and broken flowers.

The collaboration includes two bags styles – a backpack and a tote bag – with one produced in each print style. As ever with Master-piece the bags themselves will be hand-crafted to the highest standards and produced from luxurious leather, hard-wearing Cordura nylon and soft suede.
