YOUR INSPIRATION

20th anniversaries are a momentous event and traditionally celebrated by giving Porcelain China. This bag has been inspired by this tradition with the main feature of hand-painted porcelain button, unique to each bag. The elegant use of white leather would continue MIMCO's reputation of elegance. As a doctor in the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in QLD and have been inspired to use this design MIMCO 20th birthday reimagine button bag to promote the purchase of the satchel-styled doctor's bag in a 'UNITE IN WHITE' campaign where I envision part of the proceeds would go to bowel cancer research

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

My reimagine MIMCO bag is a satchel version of the iconic button bag. Dimensions are height of 25cm, length of 30cm and width of 10cm with a detachable strap of 110cm. This satchel is inspired by a youthful version of a doctor's bag which I would love to personally use currently as a paediatric trainee doctor in hospital. It would allow for ample space for a student with notebooks or work related items, namely a stethoscope for me. The interior of the bag would be one compartment with a further zip-pocket for carrying small items e.g. mobile phone.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

MIMCO design is renowned for it's attention to detail yet simplicity and versatility in style. My version of the MIMCO bag would include patent white leather exterior with gold hardware at the handles and ends of the detachable strap. The main feature is the large china blue porcelain button on the front satchel flap, each bag with it's unique porcelain button design. There would also be China blue trimming and detail The interior of the bag would be a china blue striped MIMCO lining with a zip-pocket in the inner surface also with a gold zip.
