You would never think that a high end bag designer would get his start working for a lower end company like Eastpak. But that is exactly the rise to stardom that Raf Simons enjoyed. Unveiled at the Eastpak fashion show during Berlin Fashion week, the spring ’09 collection takes a more luxurious approach from his other collections with a new line of leather bags. Expect to see the line carried at high end retailers such as Barney’s, Dover Street Market in London and Hong Kong’s Lane Crawford.
