Cool, I'm glad this popped up! I've always struggled with soft goods...
Some of my sketches for sketchwars, initially started with a men's holdall and wanted to blend materials.
Then I decided to switch it up and do a modern material construction with what's usually a more traditional silhoutte. The idea was a techwear inspired holdall for women, maybe the straps wrapping over could hold a yoga mat? And what if instead of a traditional closure the experience of the handle strap played off of sneaker culture and we used laces?
And some old sketches from last semester..
