Let’s start from the beginning like ABC. I told you two years ago, when I posted the very first Sweet Sktbs outfit consisting of snapback and long sleeve tee that the claim of this skateboarders unit is “Scandinavian Heritage European Lunacy”.
This means that in order to develop a collaboration capsule the first thing it did was to look at his neighbor: another Scandinavian brand. Sweet Sktbs is from Sweden while top outerwear brand Helly Hansen is from Norway. If the first is a skate brand while the second is a 140 years old brand whose nautical and outdoor jackets make heads turn since the 90s, what can ever be the common ground? Don’t dig too deep: the grey area here is aesthetic research.
The same codes are shared by the two brands that with their collaboration are making a contemporary statement of finesse. Making skateboarding come out of its niche in order to create superior sportswear is not a problem for the two entities involved, just like I showed you on the post about Sweet HH Sailing Jacket.
This time we are inspecting Sweet HH Classic Duffel, an hybrid luggage item that can be a backpack or a duffel bag, according to your needs. Skateboarders are used to travel so in order to fit baggage rules on airplanes, or simply to be more handy, you can hide its shoulder straps at the bottom unlocking them and putting them in the dedicated pocket.
Yes, a pocket with a velcro flap is on top of the bag. Open it up and you will have an internal net pocket on the side and another one beneath the zipper panel, beside the external zippered pocket where Elena S put her wallet.
The polyester water repellent material is yellow just like a sailing brand should. Check out all the other items of the collab where navy blue, yellow, white and red reign supreme on Junkyard, the mover behind this collaboration (and behind all things Sweet Sktbs).
