YOUR INSPIRATION

The inspiration behind this design was to celebrate the slouchy comfort of the original button bag, while dressing her up for a 20th birthday party.

This bag is the perfect way to celebrate 20 years of a classic design. The rose gold leather is bold and fun, yet soft and dependable like a great everyday bag should be. The proportions and hardware have been considered and reworked to emphasise comfort, lightness, and readiness for adventure. The silk scarf ties the design concept to its sophisticated Parisian beginnings, with the confetti print adding a touch of celebration and femininity.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

This button bag is generous in size and features similar proportions to the original design. The slightly reworked design would add slightly to the height, with final dimensions H26, W30, D16.

The design celebrates the familiar sturdiness, attention to detail and quality craftsmanship, but aims to deliver a bag that is lighter and softer. The two pockets on the front feature stitched leather buttons, and the tabs and rings to support the straps have been removed in favour of a taller bag with eyelets built into the leather (replacing as much heavy metal as possible).

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

Made from a rose gold pebbled leather, this bag features cream leather buttons and plenty of stitched detail. The front pockets sit below cream leather piping, and include subtle magnet closures to keep the pockets secure and accessible.

The bag itself includes with a sturdy zip pull and the comfortable tubular leather straps from the classic design. As a nod to vintage Paris, this bag also features a limited edition silk scarf in cream, soft pinks and earthy tones (complimenting the metallic leather).
