YOUR INSPIRATION

The MIMCO button bag epitomises style combined with practicality. My re-imagined MIMCO Button Bag is a selfish design. As a mum and a student it's near impossible to find a stylish and practical back pack, I'd love to see the fun and elegance of the button bag merged with a classic back pack design. It's 60's heritage would meet the resurgence of everything 90's when the back pack had it's glory days and hopefully provide a beautiful option for us women who's hips and shoulders have had enough of our littluns daily baggage and weighty schools books to boot.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

The dimensions of my re-imagined bag would be approximately 29cm wide at the base, 39cm in length and about 15 cm's deep. I see it in Black leather with a grey or cream contrast around the button tab.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

In keeping with the spirit of the Button bag the back pack would be leather with a metal hardware attaching the shoulder straps at the top and bottom. The closure under the flap would be a leather pull tie with leather tassel. A sturdy internal lining and extra pockets would also be important to enhance usability.
