MIJLO – The Essentials


How much can we find out about a person by looking inside their bag? What do our essentials say about us and our lifestyle? These are a few of the questions new company MIJLO asked when they launched their recent “Essentials” project.  They asked 100 global creatives to take photos of their essentials – a collection of items they can’t live without. More often than not, our bag/our essentials are basically a microcosm of our lives, aren’t they? Let the voyeurism begin!! Oh, and yes, I decided to add a photo of my essentials as well as my brother’s, ya know – for giggles. Enjoy!

MIJLO will soon be launching their first product, a simple, sustainably designed backpack which (they promise) will likely be the last bag we’ll ever need. Genius! Once I get over my Celine/Chanel/Givenchy addiction I swear, this backpack will be all I’ll ever carry! Until then, I’ll simply admire its simplicity and craftsmanship.

    I love the pop of yellow (a la banana) in a bag that is my color scheme. These are all so great!
