Bags with a message for designers
Anti-designer fashion bags.
Why it matters
We have seen the rise of disposable cheap fashion that competes with designer pieces bit now the trend seems to be getting more aggressive. With the recession still full in swing the fashion seems to be shifting towards individual statements such as the ‘Karl who?’ bag that takes a swipe at designer Karl Lagerfield. Could this anti-designer movement last beyond the recessionary times?

“Furoshiki” is a century old Japanese technique to wrap things up in a cloth in an artful way for transport. Now even the Japanese Ministry of Environment promotes this technique to reduce waste and it has found its way to the Western hemisphere too. Soap brand “Lush” already offers to wrap their goods the Furoshiki way.
The TV wardrobe, the online shop that will sell the clothes that TV presenters and actors wear will be launched through a street action called Free Posting. For that they will develop a set of posters illustrated with 600 clothes that they’ve got on sale in Fuencarral, La Latina and Malasaña. Each poster, on the top will invite the people to tear out it and take it home. During the 7 days the action lasts all the torn out posters will be replaced.
