Artist collective Soulection has linked up with Vancouver's Taikan for a range of collaborative bags. The collection consists of three bags, all of which include glow-in-the-dark logos, custom Soulection webbing, and olive details.
“The Soulection lifestyle really is about feeling good internally and externally no matter what medium we are using to express ourselves," Joe Kay said in a statement about the new collab. "The Taikan crew are one of the few who have created travel goods that go hand and hand with our aesthetic. It’s all about quality and timeless essentials that enable us to travel freely and carry what we need. We made sure to keep it simple and create 3 bags that represent us and our supporters to the core. By creating music, dj’ing, traveling the world, taking photos, educating, being a student, and staying healthy, these traits all correlate to our sound and vision of tomorrow. It’s a mindset.”
Garret “GMAN” Louie, co-founder of Taikan, Livestock and Vancouver's Fortune Sound added, “Taikan is an advocate for sound and vision, so Soulection truly resonates with our team and fans of Taikan. We seem to connect with them whenever we are travelling around the world as well so it only made sense to work together on this project. Over all we love the Soulection sound, aesthetic and vibe and believe that it organically fits with our vision and what we are doing.”
This limited collection is available tomorrow, Thursday, November 15th, 2018 3:00PM PST, at select global stockists (Livestock, ACD Gallery, Monkey Time etc.) taikaneverything.com and soulection.supply. Take a look at someone the styles as modeled by Joe Kay, ESTA and Andre Power, below.
