16 renowned designers team up with Eastpak for World Aids Day

For the fourth consecutive year, Eastpak presents its Artist Studio initiative that brings together the biggest names in fashion in order to raise awareness about World Aids Day. Eastpak asked 16 talented designers, among them Jean Paul Gaultier, Walter Van Beirendonck and Manolo Blahnik, to customize a blank Eastpak backpack, turning it into a collectible work of art. All creations will be auctioned off during 20 days, starting on December 1, 2014, with all proceeds going to Designers Against AIDS (DAA). DAA is a charity organization that was founded in 2004 and whose goal is to promote projects that bring AIDS-related issues to public attention and help prevent the spread of the disease around the world.

“In joining forces with DAA, Eastpak and the artists of the Eastpak Artist Studio are sending a clear declaration of intent to join in the fight against this destructive disease while giving support to sufferers worldwide,” the brand said in a press release. Other designers that have participated in the project include MSGM, Christopher Shannon, Antoine Peters, Chris Jannsens, Fiorucci, Sybilla, Gaspard Yurkievich, Henrik Vibskov, Lala Berlin, Scooter LaForge, KRJST, Christopher Lee Sauvé and Tim Coppens. The Artist Studio 2014 auction starts at 12pm on World Aids Day, December 1, 2014, and closes at 12am, December 21, 2014.
