Client’s briefing

Create an upmarket bag which suits the This Is No Disco inclusive and sustainable clothing collection. For the special occasion of getting the opportunity to expose my crafts in the Brussels house in Milan.

The idea, the concept

  1. A Fusion of Elegance and Versatility
  2. Sober but sophisticated design
  3. “So Black” outside with a colourfull inside

Material & details

Crafted from a repurposed leather jacket, the MILA handbag represents the perfect blend of sophistication and practicality, making it a standout addition to my product portfolio.

Elevated Design, Sustainable Heart MILA is not just a handbag; it’s a testament to sustainable fashion. By upcycling an old leather jacket, I’ve given new life to a cherished piece of fashion history. The handbag’s sleek and structured design speaks to its refined roots, exuding an air of timeless elegance that complements any outfit.

Versatility Unleashed What sets MILA apart is its extraordinary versatility. This handbag can be worn in multiple ways, allowing you to express your style and adapt to various occasions. You can choose to flaunt it with the sides elegantly folded outwards for a chic look, or fold them inwards for a more compact, streamlined appearance.

Carry with Grace MILA offers two distinctive carrying options. It features a single handle for effortless hand or wrist carry, allowing you to strut with grace. Additionally, a crossbody strap provides a hands-free experience, offering comfort and convenience on the go.
