GEAR | South2 West8
Since Friday's visit to Independence in Chicago, I have not been able to get the Japanese bagmaker South2 West8 out of my head. There's something so familiar about the aesthetic, but also something rarified. The bags I spotted at Independence were the Sunforger Day Pack, the Sunforger La Crosse Brief Case, and the Sunforger Canal Pack tote [hearts over eyes], but there are several iterations of the Sunforger line on offer in Japan, but it's anyone's guess if they're actually available for purchase from the US. If you're seriously interested in a bag, I'd call Independence: 312-675-2105.
