Raf Simons for Eastpak Spring/Summer '09

These are the new Raf Simons for Eastpak Spring/Summer '09 bags. Usually, I would be all over anything Raf Simons, but I am just not feeling these bags at all. My stylista friend Tigra has a theory about designers and bad design: when a designer becomes successful they can sometimes fall into the fatal trap of buying into their own success and hype and that's when they start creating weird experimental pieces because they can - don't support this bad design behavior and don't give them any money. I think that Tigra's theory may be applicable to Raf Simons and these bags. Has Raf Simons fallen and bought into his own hype? I hope not.
