Inspired by the adorably utilitarian anatomy of the Kangaroo, this limited edition tote comes with an external pocket in a contrasting colour. Constructed from a flexible grid of mirror-like vinyl triangles linked together with polyester mesh, Bao Bao bags are like clay in the hands of a sculptor, its shape and composition entirely at the whim of its owner. An internal zipper pocket runs almost the length of this bag, and adjustable handles can transform it from tote to shopper, depending on the occasion. There’s a reason these technical, innovative bags have gone viral, and why they are so fiercely protected by the Issey Miyake brand.
Japanese designer Issey Miyake had an infamous preoccupation with geometry and technology. Issey Miyake is hailed by artists, designers and fashion houses as one of the most influential creatives of the century, and was perhaps most famous for his eponymous boutique perfume line and lightweight, un-creasable clothing line, ‘Pleats Please’. He was also the man behind Steve Jobs’ black turtlenecks, the Lithuanian Olympic uniform in 1992, and the founder of his own design museum in Tokyo.
