The MIMCO Design Project




Designer:   Stephanie Morello


The inspiration behind this bag was from my recent trip to Africa. This bag provides a classic appearance which is great for travelling as it can be worn on the arm or across the shoulder. The different textures were inspired by the many beautiful animals seen on a game drive in Pilanesberg National Park. Black was used for the bag to resembles the beautiful night skies and silver for the glistening stars. This chosen colour palette is versatile and timeless due to this I should be chosen as this design reflects the Mimco brand and its classic consumer.


This classic bucket bag is 33cm height, 12cm depth, 26cm width. The bag is fully lined and is easily converted from an arm bag to a cross over bag, this option is easily provided with long adjustable strap. This bag is functional and a great size for both day and night. This bag has a leather panel 10cm up from the bottom along with a smaller leather patch at the front which features the signature Mimco button, this provides the hidden feature of the leather drawstring and toggle, maintaining a more sleek and classy appearance.


This bag has a combination of materials which is very accommodating for the flexibly of using this for both day and night. The bag consists of black leather, black short pony hair and brushed silver metal for the eyelets, metal divider between the black leather panel at bottom and the short pony hair panel. Drawstrings and straps are all made from the same black leather as the main bag. A brushed silver signature mimco button has been placed at the front to become easily recognisable along with a mimco badge at the bottom of the bag at centre front.
