Did you ever fantasize about walking with Mickey Mouse? Even if this seems far from reality, a cartoon bag is not! It certainly looks that way, but look at them carefully for some time and you’ll see that they are in fact 100 per cent real and exist as you see them!
You will be seriously wondering “Have these bags been photo-shopped into these images?” No! They are NOT!
The quirky bags has been created by Taipei-based design duo, Rika Lin and Chay Su, are designed to look like bold, colourful 2D drawings that have come to life. And they really do look amazing! One really has to rub eyes to believe.
There’s no doubt wandering down the street with one of these will make people do a double take.
This cool idea came to the designers one afternoon when the friends were sketching their dream designer bag. They thought how amazing it would be if a two-dimensional hand-drawn illustration could come to life as a real bag so they then set off exploring the possibilities. The designers’ ethos is to be ‘colorful, quirky and always with a sense of humor’. They say they’re driven by a passion to create laughter and to encourage people to let their imaginations go wild. I bet they are a huge success!
The bags, which started as a small run in 2010, are now a hit in over 25 countries worldwide. The designs include handbags, shoulder bags, cross body bags, backpacks, purses and laptop and iPad bags and start at 30 Euros for a purse and up to 150 Euros for the bigger bags.
