Melbourne-based fashion designer Molly Younger debuted her 'Range 1 — Early Sculptural Forms' collection, which is comprised out of raw and stylish latex bags. Cast from 100% natural latex, the capsule boats an almost "flesh-like rubber" and makes use of textiles like bubble wrap and paper lunch bags.
Molly Younger designed two wallets and six carry-alls. Needless to say, due to the uniqueness of the production process, the aesthetics of the latex bags is incredibly interesting, industrial-inspired and DIY-like. Dezeen runs through the fashion creative's process as she applies the natural latex to sculptural molds and reinforces the handles with cotton tape. Due to the responsiveness of the material to exterior factors, the process is extremely "labor-intensive" and varies among the latex bags and wallets. In addition, Molly Younger's Range 1 — Early Sculptural Forms is completely waterproof, washable and stain-resistant.
