OUR ICONIC MIMCO BUTTON BAG
VOTING HAS CLOSED
I was inspired to design a bag that all females would fall in love with. The earth tones represent Australia's land. The blue reminds me of the water that surrounds our continent and the remainder of the bag heavily features earth tones to allow our heritage to shine through. I loved the idea of bringing together two different materials so I have used leather and printed canvas. My bag is classy enough to use on a daily basis and the splashes of colour make it the perfect fun weekend bag. In my eyes you get the best of both worlds.
DETAILS & DIMENSIONS
My design is a soft charcoal ash leather button bag.
Width - 35cm
Depth - 25cm
Bag height - 25cm
Handle Length - 30cm
I have mainly stuck to the dimensions of the classic button bag from many years ago as I love the size, although I have made it slightly bigger as I think that wallets have progressively gotten bigger over the years to accommodate the additional cards we carry around with us.
MATERIALS & HARDWARE
My design consists of a beautiful soft charcoal ash coloured leather which is complemented by burgundy leather in some places across the bag. It features navy leather details with burgundy stitching.
The front pocket panels have printed earth tone canvas inserts. The iconic buttons as well as the other hardware on the bag are made of a dark metalic steel.
The concept of putting together various colours but keeping them to fairly earthy neutral tones allows the bag to look snazzy and unique and the metalic steel finishes off the gorgeous look.
