Vrac is a surprise bag.
It looks like a light, supple pouch, without any apparent depth or shape, but it’s really two objects in one–that’s its main feature. Vrac works as a pair, since one bag is never alone but always hooked to another bag, its twin.
Vrac is normally worn over both shoulders, but the possibilities are endless. The two bags can be connected and rearranged according to each wearer’s whim and the way the straps are assembled.
Vrac is perceived as a single monochrome object. Identical in appearance, the two bags are made of different materials or the same material, while their interior is composed of polychromatic variations.
The surprise lies inside, where a layering of multicoloured pockets reveals a volume and a jewel-like quality unimaginable from the outside: objects are stowed in colourful inserts or miniature purses. Each bag is a whole universe on its own.
Currently made in black and transparent, Vrac will soon be available in different materials and colours. The bags are detachable and can be rearranged with the seasons.
I’m interested in opening up new perspectives, based on how we live today and the objects and materials now available. Vrac is a surprise: it looks like a light, supple clutch purse, without any apparent depth or shape, but it’s really two objects in one. Vrac works as a pair, since one little bag is never alone, but is always hooked to another bag, its twin.
