YOUR INSPIRATION

I kept true to the iconic Button Bag which is significant in MIMCO's history and is arguably the most recognisable design, treasured by MIMCO-lovers. I kept in mind MIMCO's brand philosophy 'Accessible Luxury Designed with Quirk' and found inspiration from quirky and classic Melbourne architecture, MIMCO's founding home.
I am passionate about fashion and MIMCO is my favourite accessory brand. I feel a connection to MIMCO designs; feminine yet edgy, luxurious yet attainable.
I am creative and loved every second of creating this design...it made me wish I could ditch my marketing studies and take up fashion design!

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

I have given it a with a more structured, modern look. It is two-toned, featuring this season's hottest colour tan, as well as classic black. Mum says never mix black and brown, but that is so last season, and MIMCO loves to break the rules sometimes. Quirky quilting and stitching and gold hardware adds glamour. It is practical with front and back zip pockets, a detachable strap and stylish flap that comes over the top of the bag, featuring the two gold iconic buttons.
Length - 32cm, Width - 16cm, Height - 24cm. See sketch for further dimensions.
