Signature Item

Going Places Bag with Custom Merzatta Embellishment

Idea:

Limited run, exclusive bag for traveling in style when “Going Places”.

Goals:
  • Offer a sophisticated, unique Spring Summer shoulder tote that can be used on a “jet set” excursion, heading to the beach or anywhere in between.
  • Engage local artists / artisans in design and production process.
  • Offer unique feature or design element that can only be found at the “Going Places” gala and can be utilized even after the bag has been put away for the season.
  • Can fit handy travel items:
    • A laptop
    • Water bottle
    • Sweater
    • Pocket(s) for easily accessible mobile device, sunglasses, keys and lipstick
    • Feature to tighten up the bags profile when not “stuffed” with your travel goods
