BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE presents the new “Distortion” bag as part of its “BAO BAO PARK” project, where it collaborates with various creators. This time, the brand teams up with Rodrigo Solorzano and Naoki Kawamoto of the design studio “N&R Foldings.”
The bag comes in the form of a two-dimensional sheet with different triangular shapes, to be assembled by the purchasers themselves. As the sheet becomes three-dimensional, its form becomes distorted, which is how the name of the bag came to be.
Available in limited numbers in the 3 colors- yellow, white or black. Priced at 60,000 yen each. On sale from June 12 at Shibuya Parco and Hankyu Umeda. Will also be lined up at Fukuoka Iwataya from June 25.
As part of the same project, the brand has teamed up with art director/graphic designer Naomi Hirabayashi, artist Sputniko! and graphic designer Rikako Nagashima.
