Medium slashed flap bag
A neat box shaped leather bag with added toughness through layers of paper - like flaps, slashed in various patterns. The geometric panelled design of the flaps and top handle adds edge to the otherwise smart and elegant shape. Features a small outer pocket under the flaps, and a textile lining with inner pocket.
This bag is part of the collection 'Loosen', bags that reveal their true 'self' through time and wear. The starting point was to design a bag you can carry around for a longer time than just one season, without getting bored with it. To create objects that are not defined in a simple restrictive way, this was the main goal. They do not really belong to any season or styles, but perhaps to many of them. The layers of the forms were constructed in a way not to reveal all at a quick glance, but to leave more to come. As the bags mature, the original closely wrapped forms loosen up around the slashes, and more and more underlying details become visible. The originally harsh contours get milder, loosing their strictness yet keeping their core character.
