Atelier Ace + Porter
We got together with Japanese luggage mainstays Porter by Yoshida for their 80th anniversary to produce this rugged luggage collection, based on their Tanker series. It’s classic, light and simple — function and style at its unembellished best. Custom made of durable, richly colored cotton twill, inspired by vintage military poncho material found in Ace PDX, NYC and PSP rooms. Here, a pouch, formally referred to by some as a Dopp Kitt, named for early 20th century leather craftsman Charles Doppelt, and made to hold all items small and that necessitate a move from one place to another — toothbrushes, throwing knives or colored pencils, this one carries it.
