Renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano has designed a limited-edition of 250 bags inspired by his latest project—the New York’s Whitney Museum—for Italian fashion label Max Mara. The materials and colours are directly inspired by the museum’s exterior: from the elegant, blue-grey ribbed surface to the unexpectedly contrasting red lining and signature snap hooks in matte palladium finish. The soft leather of the outside is characterised by vertical pin-tucks, while interior is fully lined in red Alcantara fabric. The bag also features a double handles and an adjustable shoulder strap that can be detached.
