D I Y / Foil Lunch Bags
I'm a big fan of making the disposable undisposable. Like Maison Martin Margiela did with hospital bracelets, plastic and paper bags and wallets that look like paper envelopes. Anve and Jil Sander's followed with leather lunch bags and now Acne brought out a fantastic metallic crinkled leather pouch.
When I saw this cheap, faux metallic leather that looked more like the foil they wrap your take-out dinner in I knew it was time to make some bags. After analyzing a brown paper bag, I copied it on a slightly bigger scale, putting thin seams where the folds should be and finishing off with a zig-zagged cut edge.
