In accessory production, there is always a big concern of leveraging a product’s materials onto its functions. In terms of fashion and luxury design, I find that there are two levels of product’s functions. The first level is the product’s basic usage function; the second level is the product’s social and culture roles.
My project is luxury design of evening bag. I attempt to develop a real breakthrough in the design of luxury evening bags based on three aspects: first, thoroughly changing the firm belief and idea of evening bag’s material, which supposed to be soft and easy to carry; second, emphasising the cultural function of an evening bag; third, making efforts to inject new and vibrant elements into fashion design. As a small but important fashion icon, an evening bag’s beauty/characterised function is more important. I am considering something unique, elegant, with a collectable value adding to the mysterious character to the evening bag. Therefore, the idea of Chinese Ceramics comes to my mind. In this project, my collection is a series of evening bags made of Chinese ceramics.
Furthermore, I specifically tried the Chinese crackle glaze. The crackle pattern will continuously crack so that the ceramic displays new appearances at different periods. I like this idea very much. It would be like carrying an elegant bag that incorporates the glorious past with the present fashionable outlook.
