The original inspiration for the PORTER 3WAY Brief Case comes from iconic MA-1 flight jackets, with a nylon padded fabric, multiple pockets and orange linings. Removable straps allow this bag to be worn as a brief case, shoulder bag or backpack. Features include a large zipped compartment, Velcro and snap-button closures on the front pocket and an interior laptop sleeve. The bag is transformed into an adidas Originals line with exclusive 3-Stripes zipper tape and PORTER’s orange lining is swapped out with adidas’ signature blue colour.

It’d be lazy to call the brand out, claiming it is jumping on the back of the ‘chunky sneaker’ craze. A trend that has seen high-end fashion brands jump in on the sneaker scene throughout 2017. A prime example is the Triple S Sneaker from Balenciaga that sells-out everywhere in minutes. These A.P.C. runners are quite the opposite; streamlined uppers, an exaggerated but free-flowing midsole and minimal branding.

apc-sneakers-spring-summer-2018-2

Both styles feature quality fabrics including suede and canvas uppers, reflective panelling on the ‘Techno’ Sneaker and hiking-style laces across both styles. All three colours and both styles will go with everything and anything in your wardrobe regardless of the season. Clean, very European and in-line with the brand’s low-key, muted vibe.
