I SCREAM DADDIO – SARAH LUCAS | the Kvadrat bag

Designed to stylishly carry the I SCREAM DADDIO exhibition catalogue, premium textile manufacturer Kvadrat sponsored SARAH LUCAS at the Venice Biennale with the production of a limited-edition, bespoke bag in their luxurious Kvadrat ‘Waterborn’ material.  This synthetic suede does not fray, it has no need to be hemmed: just cut it to shape. The design is composed of just two pieces of material, that folded for the bag, and that for the strap.

The single strap is slender, no-hem – single thickness, and supremely strong; ingeniously threaded through two openings in the flap, the strap is attached to the front of the bag ensuring the bag is kept flat and closed.  Like the strap, the flap is single thickness, no hem, no stitching.  The sides of the front and back of the bag have their cut edges exposed on the outside (the sides of the bag stitched from the outside rather than stitched inside out), with no possibility of fraying the visible clean-cut edge defines the precise look of this unique lay-flat design; technological, elegant and super-sexy.

I SCREAM DADDIO – SARAH LUCAS | the British Council bag

Available in Venice from the British Pavilion, Giardini Di Castello, Venice | 9 May – 22 November 2015 | €10 / Euros

The brief was to design a bag to contain the I SCREAM DADDIO exhibition catalogue – a book in a bag.  We had some fun with this: ‘a bag’ is a certain kind of woman, and well ‘a book in a bag’ has a good measure of sexual innuendo.  In fact if you purchase a book and a bag together, I believe you get a discount, like the great old British tradition of a soup and a sandwich (of which if you’ve seen it, the book is a sandwich, either cheese or egg).

The bag can be worn over the shoulder normally or diagonally across the body – courier style.  The generous strap is attached to the sides of the bag – it’s why the bag needs structured sides – which also provide more room inside and add a distinctive satchel look.  I’ve always been an advocate of the usefulness of small canvas English fishing-bags, so while we’re at it, why not a generous flap? – to keep the weather out and the bag neatly closed.

When the flap is opened, ‘I SCREAM’ is revealed!  Otherwise it’s simply the DADDIO bag.
