BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE Lucent for MoMA Tote Bag
MoMA Exclusive: Lucent for MoMA is a special edition of BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE’s popular designs. It features a MoMA logo rendered in a bold graphic derived from Katakana—a syllabic alphabet unique to the Japanese language that is often used to express foreign languages and onomatopoeic words. (“Mo” appears on one side and “MA” on the other in Katakana.) Katakana is often used in the world of manga—graphic novels that are now a well-known genre in Japanese culture. The repeated use of the Katakana graphic representing the MoMA logo on this bag is intended to be a bold statement, full of humor.
BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE Lucent for MoMA Tote Bag measures 13.5” square with a top handle. It’s a great, spacious tote with a small interior drop pocket. It can hold your wallet, phone, keys, but also big enough to fit a book, tablet or e-reader.
The BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE line is designed around the theme of “shapes made by chance” with intriguing designs and diverse textures. These bags feature small triangles on a mesh fabric, a zippered interior pocket and adjustable handles.
