The Distortion Bag by Bao Bao Issey Miyake is an origami-inspired clutch that is available in black, white, silver and highlighter yellow colors.

When creating this inventive clutch concept, the fashion label joined forces with N&R Foldings, a London and Tokyo based design studio with a particular interest in digital generation and digital fabrication.

“Bao Bao Issey Miyake and N&R Foldings attempted to create new experiences with their bag design and came together to evolve the futuristic accessory."

Their unique concept was conceived using a new method of sequence pieces that transformed into a three-dimensional structure. While Issey Miyake is associated with innovative fashion, N&R is known for works that draw inspiration from the art of origami and its functional capabilities.
