DOUBLET And Beta Post Join Hands To Create A 'CARTON BOX BAG'
Japanese streetwear labels, DOUBLET and Beta Post’s debut collaboration features an exciting illusion, through the “Carton Box Bag”. Read on to know more about the unique piece.
For those unfamiliar with the names, DOUBLET and Beta Post are distinctive streetwear brands from Japan. Born from the visual representation of worn-off, cardboard packaging, the “Carton Box Bag” is one of the newest design marvels and has been created as part of a collaboration between the two labels.
What looks like real cardboard material is actually textured leather that forms the main body of the bag.
The bag also features details such as a shipping bill along with accurate labels and signage like barcodes, that are usually seen on shipping cartons, making them look like real cardboard, packaged boxes.
It also comes with a light blue fabric strap that adds a pop of colour to the overall tan/brown colour palette while ensuring a good grip.
Additionally, Beta Post’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection also exhibits a similar multivariate use of the cardboard-like, crinkled leather.
The collection consists of multiple ready-to-wear pieces that give off the sheen of leather while showcasing the rundown, raw look and feel of a cardboard.
Few pieces also give off an industrial vibe, due to the use of the cardboard texture along with a silver, duct-tape like fabric that additionally symbolises the use of metal.
