Revealing Bag

Revealing Bag

What if you wore your underwear on the outside? Though it seems like a classic bad dream or an unfortunate superhero costume, I'm interested in the ways that a bag can be revealing and personal, without being so jarring as to alienate. For complete inversion, the outside of the bag is created from underwear patches and elastic seams covered with a layer of translucent fabric, while the inside is lined with blue jeans. Carrying the bag calls into question the nature of what we consider personal and our connection to strangers.

I created the bag by modifying this pattern.
