We think the backpack to be the accessory that
between all of our products suits us the most.
We love details, we think that the hidden parts are as important as the visible ones.
Everything around us inspires us.
Our objective is to offer contemporary, minimal, urban products,
that are a perfect combination of design, fashion and sportswear.
NUMERO9 is a “spin off” of YOUKI Design, focused on the production of backpacks.
YOUKI Design isn’t born from an instant episode of enlightment. Youki is the reaction to 10 years
of processing third parties in an artisanal lab, with a structure too hot in the summer
and too cold in the winter. It isn’t born in a “posh” context, rather a suburban one. Traffic,
close by-pass roads, mess.
Henry Chinaski is our traveling companion, altogether with out worn-out backpacks.
Our sensibility however hasn’t produced poems and novels like Charles Bukowski;
it has simply produced bags, because that is what we learnt to create/make.
Youki is a creative reaction. Numero9 is its focus.
A necessary research that begins from what surrounds us, beautiful or ugly it might be.
Ours is maybe a serious evasion.
Numero9 is a coherent choice since our focus is on what most closely accompanies us day by day: the backpack.
Numero9 is designed and produced in Milan. Its attitude is young and elegant at the same time:
its spirit os both “clubber” and “everyday”, this is a mix obainable only through specific building techniques, though hidden parts and
the details that are typical of the italian leather industry tradition.
