YOUR INSPIRATION

As an Australian girl I love to wear an Australian designer and Mimco is at the forefront of handbag design down under. This bag includes all the things I think of when hear 'Mimco' - luxurious leather, precious looking metals and... BUTTONS! My design is inspired by what every woman wants in a handbag which is style, practicality and originality. The re-working of some internal features really enhances this bags practicality. My design should win because it is completely original but classic and contemporary. It's highly covetable and perfectly Mimco. It tells my story of style.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

The 'Carrie' is inspired by the Classic Button Bag and is re-imagined into a satchel. Front flap pocket with rose gold closure that features a turnlock upside-down Mimco 'i' with black enamel inlay. Bag gains structure from sides finished with a double-loop laced, semi shine cow leather. This matches the continuous double handle and the long cross body, rose gold chain detail strap. Rose gold zip top is slightly obscured by top of the bag. Four rose gold iconic metal buttons appear as feet underneath. Bag measures 24cms tall, 30cms wide and 15cms deep. Straps extend 28cms above zip closure.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

The 'Carrie' features both washed black, sugar grained, goat skin leather to create a 'loved luxury' look and a semi shine cow leather - a classic Mimco material. Rose gold dog clasp hardware on the ends of the matching chain detail cross body strap allows it to be removed. The turnlock on the front of the bag is constructed from a rose gold and black enamel inlay. Inside is 1 large phone pocket, a zip closure side pocket and a sewn in Mimco button coin purse. It has unique 20th anniversary edition Mimco lining.
