Issey Miyake is notorious for his “anti-fashion” designs. Known for his eccentric technological-driven design pieces that heavily involve pleating techniques, he creates different textures and unique cocoon shapes in his clothing that coalesces influences from both east and the west.
First launched in September 2010, the maison’s Bao Bao line consists of tote bags burgeoning from the idea of “shapes made by chance”. The ability to shape shift into different geometrical shapes — depending on how the user carries it — is one of the reason why many are spotted hoisting this bag.
This year, while retaining their iconic geometrical shapes and structure adaptability, they’ve released new and different designs that leave us in awe. We’ve picked 5 of our favourite new bags from Bao Bao Issey Miyake’s new collection you need to start toting around.
