ABOUT

BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE's DAZZLE series is designed from a single piece of monochronic material. The unique scalability of the material allows each bag to create infinite shapes, to be flexible, and to be functional as an enduring accessory. Aesthetically contemporary, the DAZZLE series' radical design and distinctive form is crafted to suit the ever-diversifying and ever-changing trends of today.

METHOD

The DAZZLE bags are created using a design process called injection molding to create their surfaces. This process involves high-precision technology that allows for micron-level adjustments to be made based on the design concept of expressing an infinite number of styles from a single piece of monochronic material. The raw material used has been tested in dozens of patterns to ensure optimum strength and flexibility and to be easily repairable and long-lasting. The DAZZLE series embodies the BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE concept and the quest for a new bag-manufacturing method.
