We’ve been fans of French-German design duo Bless for a minute now. Not sure what took me so long to check back in on things, but better late than never I suppose. I just noticed this new bag they did in collaboration with Longchamp to celebrate 20 years of ANDAM (Association Nationale pour le Développement des Arts de la Mode)—a French group that supports and promotes fresh new fashion talent. Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag (the brains behind Bless) are former winners of ANDAM, which is how they were chosen for this collaboration. I really like how they turned one simple bag into two products. When you’re done using the bag as a bag, just roll up the cloth into the handle and you now have yourself a bracelet.

There are two more bags made for the collaboration, one by Jeremy Scott and the other by French designer Charles Anastase, but the Bless bag is by far the best of the group. All the bags come with the limited edition tag so act now if you’re interested.

Oh, and just because it’s so damn sweet, I gotta show you this Filechair they did a little while back. It’s inspired by a ring binder. You turn the “pages” of the chair to suit different seating options. You can still pick it up on the Ooga Booga online store as a custom order.
