Bilbao Lucent Tote
Issey Miyake, 2010

The construction of this bag is inspired by panels of metal that steel workers fuse together to create three-dimensional structures. The latest addition to the popular Bilbao series, this bag is made of synthetic triangles in an elegant palette of copper, gold, and black adhered to flexible mesh cloth. Adjustable leather straps and one interior pocket. Made in Japan. $450.00

The store itself is separate from the museum so if you are short on time, you can still stop in the store to do some shopping. You will be amazed at what you can find!! I consider the store a museum all in itself!! They also ship items online as that !!

I love museum shops. I always visit the shops before I go into a museum. I remember the Met had an amazing bookstore!
