Celebrating 80 years of creating exemplary products Yoshida Kaban heritage brand Porter are celebrating their milestone via eight very special collaborations with equally auspicious brands and artists from the worlds of fashion and art. Cream of the crop for us at Proper mag are the three bags they’ve made together with Stone Island all of which tastefully reflect S.I.’s game-changing textile research as well as quite possibly being the best bags we’ve ever seen. The marine blue backpack, boston bag and shoulder bag have all been treated with an anti-drop agent and are made from super light Polypropolene Tela (which also has anti-bacterial properties) and Nylon Metal which provides an amazing shimmery, iridescent quality. Each bag features that Stone Island badge that we all know and love as well as the Porter logo on the outside and an anniversary label on the inside. Every time I look at these beautiful bags I start hearing New Order’s Restless in my head and begin some imaginary packing for an epic journey to Japan via Northern Italy.
