YOUR INSPIRATION

I wanted to design a bag which reflects my Japanese background and Peruvian upbringing. The big round metal clasps are quite commonly used in traditional Japanese handbags and the embroidered design on leather is popular in Peru, which is where I grew up. I know that black and other neutral colours are classic and also very MIMCO-like but 20th anniversary is a huge deal and I wanted to design something that is fresh and unique. The roman numeral for 20 is "XX" so I wanted to include a removable charm with the symbols XX.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

Body: H 15cm W 25cm D 10.5cm

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

My reimagined MIMCO button bag is crafted from soft polished leather in a natural grey tone. It features crisp white leather handle with colourful embroidered design. The repeating 'x' needlework resembles the signature MIMCO button. The bag also features big round copper gold clasps; and the iconic MIMCO button on a fresh green leather background connects the handle and the body. There is a convenient side pockets featuring signature mini turnlock. The bag comes with a white leather strap and copper gold charm XX to symbolize 20th anniversary.
