For those who can’t get enough of Issey Miyake’s cleverly designed Trunk Pleats Bag, here’s some good news. The fun and easy-to-use design now comes in a new crossbody style coined the Trunk Pleats Bag 12 Crossbody.
For those who need a quick refresher, the Trunk Pleats Bag takes inspiration from (tree) trunks. It showcases vertical pleated lines that bend and expand like the bellows of an accordion to accommodate its contents. It’s a unique detail which gives it a different look and shape each time you use it.
Furthermore, when not in use, the pleats collapse together, shrinking to a size that doesn’t take up much storage space. In addition, the environmentally friendly bag is crafted from recycled polyester fabric, making it durable, lightweight and easy to care for.
The same goes for the new launch that’s a smaller size than the original. Measuring 28 cm by 28 cm, it also comes complete with a long 119 cm strap for effortless crossbody wear. It easily fits your daily essentials and more, making it a great companion for quick errand runs and casual days out.
And because the brand is all about bringing joy to the wearers, this fun-filled style comes in 12 vivid colours. Priced at SGD145, the Trunk Pleats Bag 12 Cross Body is now available in-store at Club21 voco Orchard, and online with complimentary standard shipping within Singapore.
