Eastpak launches a new installment of Inspired by the work of… starring French brand Paul & Joe’s collection Paul & Joe Voyager. The aim of this French brand is to create young, vibrant, colorful and fun garments with a vintage spirit.

Sophie is an avid traveler, so her pieces are the eclectic result of what she sees and learns from her trips

Created by the powerful entrepreneur and designer Sophie Méchaly, mother of Paul and Joe, it favours spontaneous and cosmopolitan looks full of joie de vivre. The collaboration with Eastpak, the epitome of the cosmopolitan traveler fit like a glove. Sophie is an avid traveler, so her pieces are the eclectic result of what she sees and learns from her trips. For example, her adventures in Malaysia influenced the khaki prints and butterflies.

Being Eastpak‘s first purely travel collection, each piece is designed with great care so that the organized traveler often on the go can do so effortlessly. The exploratory and fun character of the two brands has given rise to a very fresh and urban collection featuring resistant travel accessories, backpacks and suitcases easy to transport.

The Tranzshell suitcase is rigid, flexible and practically indestructible; Tranverz, on the other hand, is soft and foldable, although bigger and the Renanna duffel, ideal for short escapades. Smaller designs include the classic Springer fanny bag, the Wyoming backpack and a beauty case. Each piece features Paul & Joe’s cheerful, classic and exotic prints.

The project Inspired by the work of… collaborates with renowned designers to blend their craftsmanship with the brand’s pioneering personality. The idea is to explore the paths that unfold when several minds think together. Get your favourite piece here.
