“Mobility” centers as the theme for SS20. With functionality at the core of pinqponq’s products, the collection aims to add some flair and a sense of escapism to your day-to-day journeys and your weekend trips.
"Would you roam forever onward? See the good that lies so near. Only learn to grasp the fortune, Fortune that is always there."
Mobility has many different notions - your daily comute to work, hicking in you leisure time or traveling to far away places. For the SS20 collection we have taken inspiration from domestic tourism. Reflecting on the modern traveller’s habits we are becoming more aware of the impact global travel has on our planet. With this in mind more and more travellers are seeking holiday destinations at home. Here at pinqponq we are big believers in encouraging local tourism and we want our global citizens to be more considerate of their immediate environments and find more local get-away locations.
Looking back to our roots and reflecting on childhood memories, we have taken inspiration from German youth hostel organisation (DJH - Deutsche Jugendherberge) an institution originally established in in Germany. Known for its straightforward architecture, practical facilities, and vivid colour palettes. We see a real synergy between the (DJH) and pinqponq as it perfectly embodies our German heritage.
pinqponq introduces four new colorways for SS20 - Vigor Pink, Infinite Blue, Crystal Rose and Rye Khaki - thus giving customers the choice between bright statement colors or a softer, more subtle look. pinqponq is also launching two new silhouettes with the spring/summer collection. One is the Kalm, a variation of the popular Blok backpack, and the other is the Tak, a versatile bag that can be used as a backpack or as a tote bag. Blending the German functionality with nostalgic West Coast counterculture, the new collection from pinqponq creates a new modern image that fits global relevant needs.
