Raf Simons’s latest bag collection is inspired to Blade Runner: the ultimate sci-fi legacy

Post-modern fashion and aesthetics merge into Simons’s newest capsule collection for Eastpak: a shoutout to sci-fi imagery and Asian style

With Blade Runner 2049 out in movie theatres in 2017, post-modern aesthetics is back on a roll and regularly shows up in films, TW shows like Stranger Things, and – apparently – also fashion and design (read also → Cos'è davvero post-moderno?).

By eluding specific definitions, this trend combines a vivid, rich imagery stuck in-between the past and the future, a mix of nostalgia for long-gone times and sci-fi fanaticism for futuristic scenarios. If the very notion of postmodernity is hard to be put in words, well, nothing embodies the major influence of such shimmering vogue like fashion’s 100% visual codes.

After its debut at the Raf Simons’s menswear show at the New York Fashion Week last June, the Blade Runner-style bag capsule collection for Eastpak is now officially available, and includes 5 items blending minimalist design, hints of science-fiction, and some Asian feel

 

The bag selection comprises backpacks and satchels: the RS Volume Toloader featuring a transparent PVC outer shell with buckled embellishments and a printed inner lining clearly echoing Blade Runner; the RS Padded, the iconic Eaestpak silhouette, made from a canvas material and coming in four colour options – black, brown, rust and navy –, each provided with a contrasting inner lining; the RS Functional, inspired by industrial workwear. The collection offers an alternative take on contemporary street culture, and openly targets urban style-enthusiasts. Prices range from 190 euro (Padded Park’r) to 220 euro (semi-transparent Toploader) as listed on the Eastpak website.
