How to Get Your Hands on the Latest BWS x AFENDS Merch Drop

Meet the 24 hour utility bag

Australian drinks retailer BWS and Byron Bay-based fashion label AFENDS have joined forces to release the fifth edition of Nice Drops: the ‘24 Hour Bag’.

The collaboration merges AFENDS’ commitment to sustainable fashion with BWS’s streetwear approach to brand partnerships. 

AFENDS, known for its eco-friendly streetwear, designed the ‘24 Hour Bag’ using recycled materials. The bag is versatile, ideal for carrying everything from water bottles and wine to essential items for a night out. It features a hi vis shoulder strap and textured black material with contrast orange ‘Nice Drops’ logo. 

Previous Nice Drops collections have included BWS-branded hats, tote bags, t-shirts, sweaters, and tie-dye board shorts. In 2023, BWS elevated its merch game with the Slowdown Studio collaboration, featuring a unique blanket designed by artist Mark Conlan and an essentials Festival Pack. The ‘24 Hour Bag’ continues the brand’s trend of high-quality, limited-edition merchandise.  

BWS and AFENDS officially launched the ‘24 Hour Bag’ at an epic party at the AFENDS store in Newtown on July 4th with friends of BWS, media, creators and the AFENDS community. 

Only 150 pieces of the ‘24 Hour Bag’ are now available to win, making it highly exclusive. To enter the competition for a chance to get your hands on one, just follow both @bws_au and @afends on Instagram and DM “Nice Drops” to @bws_au.
