For the Japanese woman, leaving the house with her trusty handbag is not enough. It just has to have everything she needs to take on the daily challenges. And that includes design. While her sidekick bag may be functional, not all handbags are fashionable given how fast trends can change. Her taste and style can change too. So she finds herself looking for something that ticks all the boxes. Mis Zapatos does that more than the average trusty handbag.
Mis Zapatos is a popular bag brand in Japan. The name which means “my shoe” in Spanish started in 2010 by designer Tomoyo Hashimoto taking inspiration from her daily ritual of checking if her shoes would match her pants or skirt. The bags are easily identifiable by the pair of legs that extends from the handles wearing different styles of shoes from sneakers, ankle-strap heels, ribbon pumps, and ‘getas’ (Japanese clogs). The concept quickly became a big hit among the kawaii-loving Japanese women of all ages.
These bags currently come in three styles you can choose from and all are hand appliqued. The bags are made in China or Thailand but all designed and patented under TurnOver Co. in Japan. For all those who are looking for an easy-to-bring bag, one can never go wrong with the crossbody or sling. Simply detach the chain straps and it instantly becomes a pochette (clutch). You’ll never go out of style with the tote bag.
This bag is full of room to store practically everything you need. Lastly, you have a two-way bag. It’s perfect for people who want style, comfort, and mobility. One will never look too dressed down as well, thanks to its exceptional ornaments and materials.
“The shoe motif is a staple design of all Mis Zapatos bags. You are in for a big surprise in the coming months as we come up with more styles and accessories, newer silhouettes, exquisite beading and embroidery adornments that will simply excite all Mis Zapatos fans out there,” shares TurnOver Co. president, Mr. Naoya Minai on what’s next for Mis Zapatos.
These bags gained a cult following that has rapidly spread to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and it is finally here in the Philippines. Fret no more! Mis Zapatos is now available at Lucerne Group’s multi-brand concept store, @Tokyo, which gathers the most trendy and reasonably-priced Japanese fashion and lifestyle brands under roof.
These whimsical Mis Zapatos bags are surefire conversation pieces so grab one for yourself or your loved one this holiday season.
