YOUR INSPIRATION

My goal was to create a design that drew on the iconic elements of the Metal Button Zip Top bag and current trends like metallic leather to create a timeless piece that I hope will be just as relevant when you celebrate your 100th anniversary. My first - and favourite - Mimco purchase was Patent Turnlock Zip Top bag, my favourite elements of which I have included in my design. I am passionate about the Mimco brand and would be delighted to be able to have a small role in helping to celebrate 20 years of beautifully made bags!

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

The bag is a classic carryall measuring 21cm high by 37cm wide by 18cm deep. It features two external pockets with iconic 'Metal Button Zip Top' style buttons that are magnetised for closure. Additionally there are double padded tubular shoulder straps, an internal zip pocket, phone holder and business card holder. The zipper has both a leather pull and anniversary 'stitch' charm. Side mini 'stitch' turnlocks enable bag expansions, referencing the iconic 'stitch' of the buttons on the external pockets. Lining features '20th anniversary' text alongside Mimco logo.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

The bag and shoulder straps are made of soft pale pink cow leather. Internal pocket trims and zipper pull are crafted out of metallic rose gold leather. Buttons on the external pockets, mini side turnlocks, shoulder strap attachments and zipper charm are done in 24-Karat shiny rose gold plated hardware. Buttons are affixed to the external pockets with pale pink leather. Lining remains in signature grey and charcoal strips, but with additional text.
