YOUR INSPIRATION

This design is my idea of a fun take on the traditional coin purse. By resizing, we can repurpose it to hold much more than just coins. This cross-body or one shoulder bag is simple and minimal, but makes a statement with the signature MIMCO buttons clasps. The bag opens and closes with a single click. The enlargement of the everyday coin purse injects a hint of quirkiness to the design. I’d love to see my design win, as it proves that a little creativity and inspiration can turn an everyday item into something fashionable, like a handbag.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

This bag will have the following dimensions: H 20cm, W (bottom) 29cm, W (top) 25cm and D 10cm. The design and operation of the bag will be much like an enlarged coin purse. The shoulder strap will be a fixed length, and can be worn as a cross-body or one-sided bag depending on comfort. MIMCO buttons will form the clasps, which need to be clicked open to access the bag interior. The bag will contain one interior zippered small compartment on the inside wall.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

The body and shoulder strap of the bag will be made of black soft cow leather. The shoulder strap will retain the design of many MIMCO bags, with a double-padded tubular shoulder strap. The button clasps and shoulder strap rings will be shiny silver-plated hardware. The MIMCO label will be in the form of a silver plate situated on the front top of the bag, with ‘MIMCO’ engraved. The interior will be lined with the MIMCO signature lining and the interior zipper will be silver in colour.
