When it comes to the early arcade game era, there are few images as iconic as that of PAC-MAN. Developed by Mr. Toru Iwatani and his team, it became one of the most influential video games of all time.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of PAC-MAN, and Kipling celebrated this momentous ocassion with a ‘to-die-for’ collection of Spring-Summer shoulder bags, backpacks and hand luggage trolleys that playfully reference the game’s endearing characters and energy-boosting fruit.
For this collaboration, Kipling’s CURIOSITY S luggage, ART M tote bags, and the DELIA and DELIA COMPACT backpacks were all embellished with PAC-MAN’s colourful and original pixelated characters.
To celebrate the gaming PAC-MAN world, extra details like a revised version of the monkey charm in a unique 2D pixelated shape, the usage of pixeled “Level up” on the webbing and playful plush and silicone game icons have been applied to 38% recycled polyester material. These are fun pieces for you to travel light with.
Rounding out this collection is the CURIOSITY S polycarbonate trolley with a PAC-MAN digital maze print and a cool silicone PAC-MAN luggage tag that
can be made even more playful for your weekend trip. You can even customize your trolley further with PAC-MAN stickers and charms
