What we collect and why we collect has long been a fascination of ours. Today we launch our first feature on Collection, a new series that looks into a collector’s stock and to understand the value they place on these objects.
Brooklyn based designer Jordan Viray has long been a collector. His apartment is filled with art, vintage finds from flea markets, and backpacks – many, many backpacks. His collection began in 2010 and has gradually grown over the past two and a half years to an impressive assemblage of outdoor and climbing packs from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. See what the significance of these backpacks are and the innovation that came from this era that is just as relevant today as it was then.
