“Spring into Action”- The Mainstreet Collection

When urbanites leave the city, the city doesn’t leave them. The natural outdoors encounter a beautiful kind of chaos, an intersection inspiring our newest collection of waterproof travel bags—Mainstreet. This versatile collection was crafted to walk the thin line between metropolitan flare and the simplicity of agora.

Travel bags for the urban explorers

“Spring Into Action” captures the small moments of a girl’s last-minute getaway with her posse. As they hike the Baikal trail in Irkutsk, Russia, Mainstreet amplifies their trek from the noise of the urban jungle into the tranquility of the outdoors.

Mainstreet presents a wide assortment of lightweight waterproof bags for those who travel near and far. And for those who stand out while doing so. Whether you are hiking in the wild, crashing a friend’s lake house, or heading home for the holidays, bolster every move by protecting your valuables without sacrificing your style.

Functional But Make It Fashion

To balance utility and design, overlays are printed on easy-to-clean high-density PVC tarpaulin fabric that features rip and puncture resistance.  Other highlights include the water-resistant zip enclosure, logo embroidered adjustable belts and corrosion-resistant zinc alloy hardwares. As a result, each piece in the collection is both candid photo-worthy and durable, the perfect dual-purpose travel bag.

It is easy to feel muted in the monotony of everyday city life. To survive its wilds, it is important to add a bit of color to the drone of it all. Mainstreet’s bold colors and clean designs provide waterproof gear a fresh aesthetic. One that is undeniable to the urban eye, yet complements the countryside. Introducing five solid colorways—Tanzanite (violet), Scarlet (red), Malachite (green), Topaz (yellow), and Obsidian (black)—Subtle gives loud and lively elements more nuance.

Run across town with an AVANT Crossbody Bag. Traverse the urban fashion zone with the FEVER Large Tote. Go for a weekend outing with a VOYAGE Travel Duffel. Or arrive early at the airport with the AFAR Rucksack. Mainstreet’s minimalist approach to travel bags gives contrast the rare ability to blend in to any environment. So no matter where the road, seas, or skies take you, the most vivid and practical choice is always Subtle.

Subtle Launches Collaboration with Famed Graffiti Artist Kenji Chai

A collaborative high-performance umbrella celebrating pop and urban culture.

September 21, 2018  /  BLOG NEWS, ITEM ARRIVAL, COLLAB/LIMITED

Society accepts “man’s best friend”—the friendly, clean, and obedient dogs. When it comes to stray dogs, however, rejection is common. While strays are commonly perceived as unseemly, homeless, and unwanted, there is one that challenges that image.

“Chaigo” is the signature character of the graffiti artist taking the world by storm, Kenji Chai. “Chaigo”—a bright turquoise dog that sports a mischievous mint green fur patch around his eye—is a reminder of how easy it is to reject others based on appearances. Perhaps, this is the message Kenji wants to share with the world.

At Subtle, we know there exists undiscovered pleasantries and lessons in the people, places, and things that mainstream ignores. We chose to partner with Kenji Chai because he injects a world of life and wonder into things that are overlooked, like grey concrete walls and stray dogs.

For the past 7 years, Kenji has sent “Chaigo” running throughout Europe, Australia, and Asia. And people are taking notice. Brands like Nando’s, Tiger Beer, and Johnnie Walker have commissioned Kenji for standout murals and campaigns focused on wildlife conservation. His most recent project broke the Malaysian record for tallest mural recorded.

“Chaigo” has now found a new home with Subtle. Kenji designed two limited-edition Mr. Rain U1 umbrellas, “The Stray” and “Vandal,” both of which is now available to purchase directly on our website’s store and soon will be on sale in select shops in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.
