“THINK BAG”: a project created by Loipell and Leather & Luxury in collaboration with Polimoda students
The “THINK BAG” project was created to give Polimoda students the opportunity to create a bag with the aim of helping these young designers to express and improve their skills.
In carrying out the project, the students had to consider some criteria of fundamental importance: sustainability, feasibility, innovative design and functionality. But not only that, the students also had to respect a maximum budget for the production of each piece and its packaging.
The samples created by the young participating designers were evaluated by a jury in presence and through an online survey.
The winning bag was finally produced by Loipell in a limited series of 20 pieces and put on the market in a well-known Florentine store chosen on the basis of the brand’s philosophy and style. The entire proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.
