Coca-Cola’s Latest Luggage Collaboration Furthers Trend Of Food and Fashion

Fast food companies have been taking the fashion industry by a storm as of late. Just this year alone, Taco Bell collaborated with Forever 21 to create some fashionable foodie wear, and KFC has been creating surprisingly stylish and exclusive drops for their online store.

Long gone are the days of fast food companies just slapping their logo on a plain white shirt and calling it a day. The food industry has started investing a lot of time, money, and effort into creating new, fashionable merchandise because, believe it or not, they actually sell really, really well.

So why does foodie fashion work? Exclusivity may be the name of the game, causing everyone to want to get their hands on a limited piece to show off on the ‘gram. Or it may be it’s because consumers have realized that food and fashion are a major part of their lifestyle, and they want to be more expressive about that.

Nevertheless, the trend of fashionable foodie items is still peaking, and it sure isn’t planning on halting anytime soon.

Now, Coca-Cola has recently teamed up with HEX, a renowned fashion accessory brand, to create innovative laptop and sneaker bags with the iconic “Enjoy Coca-Cola” logo on them. And I must say… they look pretty damn good.

Feast your eyes on the collection, which will surely be the next big thing for those who love food and some swag with functionality:

The Sneaker Sling: $70

The Sneaker Backpack: $160

The Sneaker Duffel: $170

Latest Korean Meme Has Schoolgirls Carrying Giant Backpacks Made of Junk Food

korean-snack-pack

The latest in WTF? news: Korean schoolgirls are walking around with giant backpacks made from chips, snack cakes, Pocky, and bottles of yogurt. Why? Who cares? I just want one of my own.

In no small feat of playground ingenuity, students in South Korea have been assembling oversized “snack packs” comprised of their favorite bags of chips, bottles of drinkable yogurt, satchels of chocolate marshmallow cakes, and bins of cheese balls, with packaged candy bars tied together as backpack straps. The reason, according to Kotaku, has something to do with girls giving the bags as birthday presents, though some are also just making them for themselves, presumably in case of a zombie apocalypse.

With all that posterior real estate being occupied, you can’t help but wonder where these girls put all their school supplies, though you gotta love their priorities.

JanSport Releases Multi-functional Backpack With Insulated Burrito Compartment

Last week was The Agenda Show in Anaheim, CA, one of the premiere forums for the most inspired in the streetwear and action sports industries to unite. Since I had no meetings for the day, I decided to scope the crowd and get my socialite on. I met up with my man Clayton .aka. Le Panda, to walk the show and take some photos. Somewhere in the mayhem of people, clothes and sticker-covered-beer -cans, Clayton showed me the backpack he got from the fine people over at the JanSport booth. Instantly I knew I had to have one, for the sole purpose of their burrito pocket. Check out the bag, our trip to get a burrito, and the rest of JanSport’s new backpack line after the jump:
