Issey Miyake Spring/Summer 2012 “Bao Bao” Collection


The newly released Spring Summer 2012 collection of Bao Bao bags by Issey Miyake comes in fluorescent, saturated pops of color, perfect for making a hot statement in the warm months ahead.

Inspired by the graphic panels of modern architecture, the new Bao Bao range are made of a futuristic synthetic material fused to mesh cloth, and are foldable for handy storage. The totes, for one, come in shimmering, faceted ombre, colorful stripes and graphic numeral prints.

Jumping on the stud bandwagon, highlights also include studded totes, with each triangular panel of the bag dotted with mini studs for textural interest. There’re also smaller pieces like cosmetic pouches, purses and camera sling bags, for those who want a piece of the Bao Bao in a more discreet, petite package.

An indication of the covetable nature of these bags: luxury retail boutique Club 21 will be dedicating a stand-alone store for the Bao Bao range by Issey Miyake, which is slated to open in March 2012. For now, grab the new Bao Bao bags by Issey Miyake at the Club21 Accessories Store, Level 1, Isetan Scotts.
