Carhartt WIP x RAMIDUS

07 / 14 / 2023

Carhartt WIP has collaborated with RAMIDUS, the Japanese bag and accessory brand, bringing together elements of music and skateboarding to create a series of functional, everyday items. The resulting collection features nine products, which utilize Carhartt WIP’s hardwearing, water-repellent Duck Canvas, and tap into the brand’s subcultural roots. 

Included are styles such as spacious multi-pocket totes, hip and messenger bags, as well as a DJ Bag which can house up to 40  12 inch vinyl records. In addition, RAMIDUS has also reworked Carhartt WIP’s signature Kickflip Bag – an ever-present style in the brand’s collections, which features fastenings and clasps that a board can be fixed to. 

The collaboration also includes an oversized tote bag; a hybrid between a wallet and a hip bag – titled the Wallet Pouch; and an understated newspaper bag.  

Each item has a nylon lining, and has been designed with comfort and ease-of-use in mind. The collection utilizes a muted color palette of white and Carhartt WIP’s iconic Hamilton Brown, while designs are also accented with a custom Carhartt WIP x RAMIDUS woven label. 

The accompanying images for this collaboration were shot in Tokyo by Kento Mori, and feature the iconic DJ Muro, skater Yuma Takei, and model Mamina Kagami.
