This Bag is a Tweeting Monster
Oct 19, 2012 - by Jessica Lapidos
What first appeared to me to be a double speech bubble, then angled seemed more like the Twitter bird. According to the designers though, this bag is a Monster. I suppose we're all right. To tweet can be a many monstrous thing. Welcome to Mupp. What does it look like to you?
Welcome to Mupp is a carefully made brand of bags, locally produced near their Parisian home. The owners and designers are siblings Georges and Claude Moes, both Central Saint Martins grads now with a background in film costume design.
Melding french urbanity with their need for nature, they've come to create chic pieces with a touch of cheek. It's made for the girl with a sense of humor, but also a high level of care about the creative process.
In the land of Mupp, they understand you're going to want to touch the leather, smell the leather, rub your face on the leather before you purchase anything. So if you're ordering online, they'll send you leather swatches free of charge before you tell all your friends that you're purchasing this in 140 characters or less.
After loving on the luscious leather (oh yeah, I touched it, and it was yummy), the Monster Bag can be acquired on the Welcome to Mupp site for 150 EUR. They've also got it in a slew of colors. Tweet about it, little monster.
