Without any embellishment, transparent bags seem light and airy, but Mame by Maiko Kurogouchi is a brand that carries an unusual variety of bags that are bogged down with buckles, beads and stitching.

Kurogouchi honed her craft from her time working in Issey Miyake's design studio, which might help to explain why these PVC accessories look so flawless. After graduating from Bunka Fashion College, it took some serious convincing for Kurogouchi to be able to have these statement-making bags produced by factories in Japan. The bags in black, brown and a milky white color definitely follow the "more is more" philosophy and are not of afraid of a little juxtaposition. Unsurprisingly, the unique bags have since brought Mame as a brand into the spotlight on the streets of Tokyo.
