Sacha Wendt | Bag Design
After an artistic schooling, followed by fashion college, Sacha Wendt has chiefly worked in (street)theatre. Collaborating with designers and stylists, she has created the most diverse array of costumes for theatre, festivals, film and television.
Besides commissioned costumes, Sacha designs and produces handbags. These limited editions are sold in gallery shops, museum shops and boutiques.
(10) '2D' SERIE / SERIES - BAGS AND SLEEVES
Sacha's 2D bags and sleeves are nostalgic models with a dash of humour. She revamps the attaché case and school satchel of yesteryear, and casts granny's handbag in a colourful new form.
With their quirky two-dimensionality, the 2D bags look straight out of a comic book. These stunning bags can be worn to school or work as well as on special occasions.
In addition to bags, the 2D series includes SmartSleeves for mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
For her 2D bags and sleeves Sacha Wendt uses wool felt and leather. Wool has a natural greasy coating that makes it water repellent and dry soil resistant. The structure of the fibre produces colours of wonderful depth and intensity.
The Museum of Bags and Purses in Amsterdam recently acquired the red wool felt suitcase for its permanent collection and the 2D bags are on sale in the museum's shop.
