By Laura on January 25th, 2011

Over the past year Eastpak has collaborated with the likes of Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Christopher Shannon and Gaspard Yurkievich. The latest of these high end collaborations, sees the backpack maker working with Kris Van Assche.

The Belgian designer first established himself in the fashion world as Hedi Slimane’s assistant on the Rive Gauche Homme line for Yves Saint Laurent. He continued to collaborate with Slimane at Christian Dior for the launch and development of the Dior Homme collection. In January 2005, Assche presented his own men’s collection for the first time in Paris during Men’s Fashion Week. Today he heads his own label, KRIS VAN ASSCHE, and is the artistic director for Dior Homme

The collaboration with Eastpak see’s Assche bringing his expertise to the line of bags set for release in June. Based on early promo shots we can expect backpacks and oversized shoulder bags in materials such as parachute cloth, leather and rough cotton.
