The Crude Get Going

The untroubled laissez-faire man welcomes the wild and seeks a new primal feeling, one in which the rough and natural meets the cheap man-made. The hobo is his ultimate style icon; living on the streets, engulfed in bags with big, unwieldy shapes. ’The Crude Get Going’ is a set of ideas for applying this homeless kind of beauty to bags, in material, form, function and construction. The animated shorts and the collages are meant to inspire textile manufacturers, while the bags themselves are the start of a small bespoke handbag brand.
