THE DAZED & CONFUSED x MARIOS SCHWAB BAG

As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, Dazed & Confused created a ‘time capsule’ of objects donated by the magazine’s collaborators from the last twenty years, intended to be representative of the past two decades of the title. The 34 submissions, which were auctioned on eBay with the proceeds going to Oxfam, included a crystal-encrusted cigarette lighter from Donatella Versace and a signed sketch by Yohji Yamamoto. I bought the amazing, one-off ‘3D’-print tote bag by Marios Schwab, which brings to mind the first ‘3D’ issue of Dazed, from August 2009, which was based around the designer’s fall/winter 2009 collection.

I went through my archives, and dug out that issue, as well as the only other ‘3D’ issue which Dazed has done (to my knowledge), the Daft Punk one from December 2010. With the 3D glasses on, the print of the bag seems to jump right out. I was particularly thrilled to get this piece, because I was obsessed with that particular Schwab collection, inspired as it was by geology.

I hardly wear colour these days, but I couldn't resist... with SS08 T-shirt and FW07 holographic high tops both by Raf Simons:

  2. The unusually long length of that tote bag is appealing. As are your SHOES! This blog is always such a good read for me, I'm going to be annoying and tell you to update more. :)

  4. Amazing bag, that was such a great snag! Colour suits you! Forget all the black and white in your 'wishlist' (apart from those Lanvin trousers (though you did say once you had never felt the need to spend more than £40 on your legs!) and possibly the Neil Barrett high tops), and embrace all the colour that must be lurking in the shadows of that incredible wardrobe of yours!
