The Museum of Modern Art might be known for displaying some of the world’s most famous paintings like The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh and The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali, but it also has an impressive MoMA Design Store that retails a variety of everyday items like home furniture, tech electronics, as well as a selection of bags and wallets like this glossy number from Bao Bao Issey Miyake.
And this is not by any chance, as Bao Bao Issey Miyake bags are inspired by the art and architecture of Frank Gehry, with the original design paying homage to the Guggenheim Museum.
The unique bags are engineered with an innovative technique comprising small triangular PVC panels layered over a thin mesh fabric, giving it the ability to take on a different shape whenever you use it.
It also comes in different finishes depending on seasonal launches, and you can look forward to this bi-coloured combination of Blue/Green and Red/Orange for the Lucent Gloss Tote at the MoMA Design Store.
Measuring 34 cm wide (the triangular panels form a perfectly square bag), these spacious totes are great for carrying by hand or slinging over the shoulder with a quick adjustment of the extendable handles.
Priced at SGD852 (or SGD766.80 if you’re a MoMA member), the eye-catching Lucent Gloss Tote is available to ship directly to Singapore. A fun piece made for art and fashion lovers alike, the distinctly faceted exterior of the Bao Bao is truly an it-bag that transcends the test of time.
