sejima created two bags, one called the ‘long bag’ and the other, the ‘curved bag’. both turn multipocket travel bags, one designed to hang on the wall and the other a neck pillow, respectively, into carry-on styles.

diller also created two pieces, first reinterpreting the nylon garment bag with utilitarian zippers and buckles allowing it to transfrom between raincoat and yoke style bag. the latter was transformed into a lighter item for women to carry ‘sketchpads, sandwiches and lipstick.

for her design for prada, boeri has created a messenger style bag with removable and adjustable modules. in the booklet, boeri states, ‘in the way I work, the image derives from function, and so many design work starts precisely from this.’

‘prada invites’ encompasses an examination of the intersectionality of design, exploring unexpected conversations between different disciplines, the company said. prada also made note that its invitation of three leading females expanded upon its ‘fascination with multifaceted representations of contemporary femininity.’
