YOUR INSPIRATION

The new button bag combines the mod vs ladylike style of the 60s. Oversized pocket flaps inspired by 60s coats vs ladylike purses like those of Jackie Kennedy. The bag asks to be casual when using the outside compartments and ladylike when unclipping the purse.
I grew up longing to take home one of Mimco's eye-catching pieces that showed a story, and it gave me a great sense of pride the first time I did. My bag is a move-on from the classic Button bag with existing lovable features and then tells a new Mimco Button bag story.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

27cmH, 36cmW, 24cmD, it's a (purse) bag inside a (tote) bag! The Frame clip purse acts as a centre compartment while either sides of it are open. There is an internal zip pocket on the back side of the bag. The button tabs on the side acts to close the top of the bag but if opened, the bag is a full rectangular tote. Two button pocket flaps are on the front while the functioning pocket zip are exposed under the flaps. The detachable shoulder strap is clipped onto either sides of the frame purse.
