The design of this limited edition collection was inspired by a famous Vlisco print, originally entitled “speedbird”. Capturing the spirit of both the old world and the new, this print was once adopted by Air Afrique, a local airline based in Togo, as the uniform for its stewards and stewardesses. And now, thanks to this unique collaboration with Eastpak and Harvey Bouterse, this archived print is taking to the skies once more.
