What has been your inspiration for the EASTPAK Artist Studio Bag(s)?
The goal was to design a well dressed bag. The greatest challenge was to restyle the sporty bag without touching the silhouete or the shape of the bag.
Which city do you live in – can you tell us what it’s best kept secret is?

The proceeds from the sales of your bag will go entirely to Designers Against AIDS – What are your views on safe sex? Do you personally think it’s still important?
I have the feeling that the youth is more aware of the AIDS problems than my generation. I believe we will never beat Aids. The only thing I would like to add, is that safe sex not only protects against sex, but also agains many other diseases.
