Mismo team up with Close Up And Private for two limited edition versions of the popular “M/S Shopper” bag. Close Up And Private, or CUAP, was started by artist Sergei Sviatchenko as an on-going personal project on modern style. The platform has now spawned into a visual archive that reflects how fashion and self-identity are intertwined.
For the Mismo collaboration, Sviatchenko put his arts background to good use by personally designing the playful graphics emblazoned on each unisex shopper. One image depicts a pair of glasses held against a gray background, and the other is a stylized trouser leg set against a teal background. The bags are constructed from canvas and feature vegetable-tanned leather trims. Each version is limited to 25 pieces and comes equipped with a hand-polished zipper and an inside pocket for phones, credit cards and accessories.
The collab is priced at $288 and is available now exclusively through Private Classicist.
