If you didn't get enough of the Wes Anderson x Roman Coppola combination last year with the feature film, Moonrise Kingdom, the often-collaborating duo have taken over the direction of Italian fashion giant, Prada, and their new fragrance, Prada Candy. Two guys, one girl (a girl that was Woody Allen's love interest in the excellent Midnight in Paris), some popcorn, French language, and the quirky storyline of one of America's finest, and you got yourself some... Italian fashion.

Every Freitag “Hazzard” bag has a distinct life of its own before ever making its way onto your back. Each bag is typically on the road almost fi ve years before being crafted from recycled truck tarps, with individual design infl uenced by the colors, writing or markings of the tarps. Hand cut in Zurich Switzerland, the Hazzard also uses recycled seat belts as the shoulder straps, meaning every single bag that comes out of the Freitag factory is 100% unique. The pack is perfect for daily use, from storing sketchbooks and electronics, up to a 17” laptop, while also featuring a dry compartment in the front of the bag.

Wait, people still get a Spring Break?
