The System and Form collection might be comprised of gypsy bags, but the designs are far from what people would initially expect. Simple and modern with zigzagging patterns that decorate the exterior of each design, the gypsy bags take after the traditional hair braids worn by Carpathian gypsies. Their often elaborate hairstyles are only let down on festive days.

Designed by Budapest-based designer Agnes Kovacs, the gypsy bags may seem minimalist at first, but there is a sophisticated amount of intricacy that sets them apart from similar contemporary purses. As for the name of the gypsy bag collection, the designer shares, "The collection is based on a system that has an outstanding ability to create forms."
