Joining in with END.’s 15th Anniversary proceedings, Japan’s Master-Piece collaborate with the retailer to deliver a 5-piece capsule of military surplus inspired bags.
Rugged and ready for anything, Master-Piece have cultivated a unique perspective on bag making since they first began operating in 1994. Proudly made in Japan by local craftsmen, the Osaka-based label establishes their central tenets of functionality and modernity with a wide array of bags designed for contemporary living, ensuring the perfect confluence of style and substance to create hardwearing yet stylish accessories. Rooted in quality production, Master-Piece pride themselves on creating items that combat the trials and tribulations of everyday use, prepping you for whatever your day may throw at you.
Tapping into a wealth of vintage army surplus as inspiration for their first collaborative outing, END. and Master-Piece have designed a selection of backpacks, waist bags and over-the-shoulder bags that personify the two brands’ pragmatic approach to design and their distinctive aesthetic values. Dressed in khaki, olive drab and black, the selection of bags blends earthy shades for a militaristic outlook, drawing influence from the rich history of army surplus and Americana style in Japan. Each constructed with ballistic nylon and nylon twill fabric for water repellence and a lightweight build, cow leather detailing rounds off each bag with a flourish of luxury. Complete with Master-Piece’s signature branded plaque, END. apply their own touch of elegant branding with a debossed leather logo patch for a final boost of co-branded detailing.
Consisting of the Link Backpack, Shoulder Bag and Waist Bag, alongside the Lightning Backpack and Waist Bag, END. and Master-Piece ensure that every situation and need is covered with this plethora of robust, utilitarian bags.
