A characteristically minimalist and organic Côte&Ciel bag, created in the search for an advanced look inspired by the biotic forms found in nature. The Meuse is a reinvention of the classic backpack for the now. Aimed at those who reject the last decade’s fixation with retro and want to wear their embrace of super-modernity on their back. The clean lines conceal a deceptively large main compartment, external pocket, waterproof zips, iPad pouch and 15’ laptop pouch. Subtle extra width at the base of Meuse folds around the wearer’s body for ultimate comfort. Concrete denotes the color. The herringbone-pattern the strength and lightness of vertebra. This combination recalls the stamped concrete used in high-end architecture. The twisted acrylic yarn adds a tensile quality to the poly-cotton. The randomized Herringbone weave means no two bags are exactly same. Lending a customized drawn on graphic feel that pays homage to the interplay between smooth and rough surfaces in the ‘ultra black’ abstract art of Pierre Soulages. The black leather frame adds tactile comfort.
