Möbius band transformed by a lengthwise cut. As a backpack it runs across the shoulders and back. When it passes under the armpits it widens the handles to form two triangles that hide side pockets; these are joined behind the back to then return to the main body and handles. The side pockets allow for a fast access since the zippers can be opened without removing the backpack. The zipper pulls are hidden under the armpits.

HistoryOne of the recurring themes of design, architecture and art throughout modern history has been, the Möbius band. In my case it allows me to make a “round” handbag, a bag that integrates all these elements in a single unit. Thus I returned to an old but timeless idea that served me for my final graduate fashion design project, and which is increasingly better adapted over time to the new needs.
The collectionBandas: the search for a unity in bag design, (body, handle and other elements become the same thing with a single gesture), has lead to developing a bag as a strip that hangs and wraps around the body at the same time as it serves as an object container. One of the most recurrent ideas in the design of these strips is the representation of geometric infinity: the Möbius band.
