Filson is a brand that epitomizes quality in everything they do, so it’s no surprise that the privately-owned band of outdoorsmen is unveiling a stunning set of handpainted luggage. The collection in question is a collaboration with the New York-based artist Patric Hanley and consists of a very limited capsule of the brand’s signature luggage embellished with Hanley’s paintings.
Inspired by Hanley’s woodsy, mid-western stomping grounds, the Ohio-bred artist shines a light on elements of nature and wonder-inducing American fauna. Including the likes of painstakingly detailed mallards and deer, this collection evokes what the artist remembers most about growing up, claiming these nostalgic images as the primary inspiration behind the collaboration. Moreover, these critters and numerous others were hand-painted by Hanley onto Filson’s Zippered Tote Bag, Original Briefcase, and Medium Duffle, going to show that art is more than just an investment, as it can occasionally hold your luggage too. If you are fond of Americana and find yourself in the market for some new travel gear, this joint effort is exactly what you are looking for.
Filson’s stylish and bafflingly limited 18-piece joint effort with Patric Hanley will be available tomorrow through the online retailer. Starting from $1,050 for their Tote Bag with Zipper, we recommend trying to get to it as quickly as you can.
