Spike, a director highly acclaimed for his debut work "Being John Malkovich” and later movie, “ Adaptation”, was regularly using items from THE NORTH FACE since the 1980s when he started as a photographer. On one of his visits to Japan, he discovered THE NORTH FACE Purple Label 3Way Bag and admired its concept of a stylish and functional outdoor brand. He was overcome with a strong urge to create an updated version of the bag by using an original check pattern material made by Italian textile house PARA and by giving it functionality to support a stylish active lifestyle.
The 3 way bag (US$ 450+tax) can transform into an overnighter briefcase, a shoulder bag with a removable shoulder strap, or a backpack. The interior has a PC storage sleeve and a mobile phone pocket.
The two-wheel roller (US$ 590+tax) adheres to the carry-on size for major airlines and has two trampoline compartments with a center area for a PC storage pocket, a mobile phone pocket and mesh pocket section with a utility pocket divided into three sections.
All bags come with an original tag, both models have 2 colorways and are available at nanamica stores and other selected retailers for a limited time.
