When Issey Miyake’s unique accessory line, Bao Bao, was introduced in 2010, most fawned over the unique 3D puzzle-like construction that’s made from inter-connected triangular pieces of fabric. Its hype spawned various knockoffs in the market, thanks to its intriguing design and variety of materials the bag comes in.
What makes the Bao Bao series stand out is the way its shape can be modified merely by folding along the triangular pieces. This means that your bag can actually take on different shapes and contours according to what you place inside it. Its fluid shape also changes slightly each time, so there isn’t one static or permanent shape your bag will be in (as opposed to how a structured, box/bucket bag would be like). It also helps that the sheen of the bag casts a different look depending on the light—unless you’re getting the new matte version that was debuted last spring.
A regular on the arms of street style favourites including stylist and fashion consultant Leaf Greener, Issey Miyake Bao Bao comes in a range of different versions for day to night purposes. This includes the uber-popular shopper tote, shoulder bag, wrist clutch, Boston tote (which doubles up as a shoulder bag as well), and even backpacks roomy enough to put your laptop in. The stain-resistant material makes it an excellent accessory to use for traveling as well!
