YOUR INSPIRATION

I was inspired to make this bag because personally I find handbags bulky and irritating to carry, this is why I chose to make my button bag a reasonable size and shape that could easily be carried over the shoulder or on the back as well as in hand. I should be chosen as the winner of this competition because the MIMCO Button Bag has a whole new look here but still has the same iconic style and icons incorporated into it. This bag can go with any outfit, casual or high fashion.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

My button bag is sized so that it can be carried easily over the shoulder or in hand with a height of 42cm and widest point of 26cm. The bag is symmetrical on both sides and two toned in a tanned colour. The bag is almost triangular in shape and consists of three compartments, two being iconic MIMCO button purses on either side of the main compartment. Sealed with a zip that folds over to a MIMCO lock the compartment can extend in size when the lock is unlocked.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

The bag is two-toned with the overall skin being a pale tan and plastic lining, seaming and straps being tan. The bag is made out of leather with the bottom half made out of MIMCO wet nylon to allow stretch. The lining of the bag is black silk with small white polka dots. There is a practical silver metal loop at the top of the bag where two tanned circular straps are fashioned, black chrome bag knots (or slides) weigh these down. The two iconic buttons and lock will be black chrome and the purse's closures (clasps).
