Möbius band transformed by a lengthwise cut dividing it into two connected parts. The widening of one of the strips sections to form two triangles is the main body of the bag. These two triangles are joined by a zipper, being separated or joined as wished. Inside two open zippers turn it into only one space and when closed splits it two. If these triangles are brought forwards individually it becomes a vest; if they are joined and folded by the zipper it becomes a shoulder bag.

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.
