Since its inception in 2000, the Issey Miyake Bao Bao bag has taken the world by storm due to its unique design that so accurately reflects post-modern society both in finish and functionality. Inspired by new technologies, Japanese designer Issey Miyake utilises signature geometric shapes to create the array of intriguing bags and pouches. The defining element of the Issey Miyake Bao Bao bag is its ability to bend and fold in order to transform itself and create dynamic shapes to accommodate the items inside the bag. This flexible functionality is perfect for the busy, modern woman.  This season, Issey Miyake offers pieces that are adaptable for day-to-night situations and cater to women on the go with the dynamic Lucent range and the glamorous Prism range. The Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent Pro-1 Large bag in matte white, as seen on bloggers Sincerely Jules and Leif Greener, is the perfect everyday sized tote bag that can take you from work to play through its unique ability to exude both fun and sophistication. The Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent Pro-3 shiny large tote bag is also available in navy. In continuation with the seasonal navy colour is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent-2 range that includes that small tote. Both bags have a shiny finish and internal zip pocket. For a minimalist and elegant pouch option there is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent Basics Small Pouch with a zip. Coming in neutral colours of black and white and maintaining a shiny finish, the Lucent Basics Small Pouch will highlight any day or night outfit. Its practicality and style has made it a go to options for your everyday essentials or to double as a make up purse. A popular choice for prominent fashion editorials such as Vogue Japan, is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent-1 Small Zip pouch in red and the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent-1 Small Tote, also in red with a shiny finish. With small and statement pieces that typically reflect the Issey Miyake designer culture, the Lucent-1 series is a glamorous complement to an elegant evening outfit. For even more variety in the Lucent series there is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Lucent Flap bag, which is a fold over clutch in white or black matte finish. The day-to-night clutch is ideal for its dynamic and practical features that cater to the everyday needs of the woman on the go. Nothing says contemporary glamour like the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Prism series. The ideal night-out companion, is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Prism Basic Zip Clutch bag. Featuring a functional wrist strap and coming in glamorous colours of white, black and silver, the Prism Basic Zip Clutch is a must-have accessory for every dinner and drinks event this season. Alternatively there is a larger option in the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Prism Basic Medium Tote in shiny white and silver, whose transitional and dynamic elements have made it a popular choice for influential editorials such as W Magazine US and Oyster Magazine Australia.
