Dutch character design duo, Loulou and Tummie were invited to design two new series of bags for LeSportsac. Last Fall, they became LeSportsac’s Artist in Residence and created carryalls in the themes of Flower Up and Urban Fruits. Here’s their joyous description of the cosmetics bags and tote bags shown above:
In a burst of energizing orange your morning coffee comes to life as cute over-caffeinated characters on the front panel. While the other panels feature more adorable little friends, like giraffes, strawberries, pineapples, dazed traffic cones and a super-excited potted plant!
That “super-excited potted plant” is awesome.
This (above) is the Urban Fruits collection: “…A medley of city staples such as take-out cups and traffic cones that have morphed into whimsical personalities.”
One of my favorite pieces in Loulou & Tumme’s Urban Fruits series is this cat pouch. It clips onto your bag and looks like nothing more than a blue cat in orange trousers. But, if you’re out in the world and find that your purchases and accumulations eclipse the aforementioned bag, presto change-o: the blue cat clip turns into a red tote bag.
This (above) is from the Flower Up series: “A cute and girly print with happy flowers.”
The Flower Up collection gets pretty girly, but don’t be fooled. LouLou and Tummie are stocking their studio with manly machines like this new woodworking apparatus, and they’re making great little wooden robots.
I couldn’t resist making this .gif because the LeSportsac site is kind of fun and was just asking for it. The Loulou & Tummie for LeSportsac collections are currently on sale for 25% off with code “SAVE25.” Get yourself some cool stuff for carrying around your other cool stuff here.
