DROP TOP DESIGN
The project is based on 2 core issues: optimize space and arouse buyers' creativity, allowing clients to be stylists of their own bags.
The main idea is that objects must adapt to our life-style, although lately is happening the opposite.
We looked for the perfect fabric for a long time, and, at last, we chose "SUB", a fabric symbol of double-faced materials, in order to represent our products.
At the instant we made the prototype, we realized that the biggest problem was the cost of production. It took 2 hours to create each item. We studied for many days lengths and convenient materials and, although we didn't reset costs, we were able to create the final product in half the time.
