YOUR INSPIRATION

I was given my first button bag when I was 13 in 2005 and I've been in love with them ever since. I was inspired by the constant evolution of the button bag to fit the needs of the modern women. As a student I prefer to take my iPad but fitting it in and out of my bag is sometimes difficult without taking out other items first. The front envelope offers easy accessibility to essential items and would fit an iPad mini easily. Thedesign offers an eclectic mix of leathers, quirky innovation and functionality

From the iconic silver Mimco buttons to the eclectic mix of leathers, this bag carries the distinct classic aesthetic features that mimco customers expect while maintaing effortless functionality and easy accessibility. It also offers some innovative and quirky design aspects including the envelope attached to the front of the bag which is large enough to fit a mini iPad.The bag has expansion options located on the sides of the bag which are finished off with button studs.
