If there’s one brand that has been consistently churning out bags that showcase the perfect use of PVC, it’s Comme des Garçons. From crinkled kraft paper stitched within a transparent PVC outer from the Comme des Garçons SHIRT line to the totes that are completely see-through in the contemporary CDGrange, these bags are well-loved by men and women alike for their ease of use and eclectic touch.
The latest PVC bag to join the family comes from Rei Kawakubo’s very own protégé, Junya Watanabe, who has released an all-new bag under his namesake label that’s also been part of Comme des Garçons since its inception in 1992.
Coined the JWCDG Top Handle (USD325), the bag measures 36 cm across by 28 cm high and comes with a simple briefcase-style flap with a silver tone press-release fastening. Available in 3 options like Clear, Pink or Yellow, it’s meant to be worn via its single top handle, making for a chic case that will fit your A4 documents and everyday essentials within.
For those who are worried about showing all your contents, you will be pleased to find that the JWCDG Top Handle comes with an additional cotton twill pouch to keep your personals out of sight. Priced at SGD441 after conversion, the bag is currently available via SSENSE. Go. #happyshopping
