Collection Guide SS19

Since the launch of our first canvas bags in 2008, the Fabric Collection has evolved from four basic canvas styles, to become a broad and outstanding collection of unique contemporary men’s bags designed for the style-savvy quality-conscious consumer, meeting every need of the modern traveller with sleek cardholders to meticulously crafted travel bags.

The Fabric Collection combines classic design virtues and sophistication with Mismo’s flair for detail and modern functionality. The range features both professional and everyday bags, crafted from premium Italian fabrics, selected for their unrivalled technical qualities and tactile sensibilities.

The collection is available in a select range of classic and exclusive seasonal colours. Constantly seeking to define the essence of masculine elegance, the fabrics range from plain-woven canvas to heavy-duty ballistic nylon and are always paired with Mismo’s customised hardwearing full-grain leather trim accessorised with either solid brass or gunmetal hardware.

New models are launched seasonally so the collection is always stylishly current. The collection is split into three sub-collections APPEARANCE, LEGACY & EXPRESSION divided by the fabrics’ technical capabilities.

Ever present in the most stylish way. An elegant assortment of carefully selected bags and accessories for the modern professional and avid traveller. Classic colour combinations in an enduring mix of hard-woven waterproof Italian nylon paired with sturdy, custom developed vegetable tanned full-grain bridle leather and golden brass hardware.

Navy/Dark brown

Mismo offers a myriad of shades although hard-woven, waterproof navy nylon paired with dark brown bridle leather trim is perhaps the ultimate classic – and it’s easy to understand why. This timeless combination oozes sophisticated elegance and is destined to seamlessly blend with almost any outfit. The fabric is waterproof by nature and certain to maintain its clean and stylish appearance for years.

Same trusted article as our navy nylon. The concrete grey-toned nylon in combination with cuoio bridle leather is the enlightened choice for individuals seeking a little more diversity and flair, but who still favour architectural precision in their personal styling. The combination is offered in a curated selection of styles in which the tan bridle leather ensures a rich patina as the leather gently ages with grace.

To many people the true legacy of Mismo is a cotton canvas bag. When launching the first fabric bags in 2008, we used a particular tight-woven cotton canvas article, a feature that helped bring Mismo bags to international attention at renown fashion and concept stores. The premium canvas fabric was originally developed for the Italian military, underlining the durability and aesthetics of this fine and tight-woven canvas. After a four-year hiatus from this particular canvas during which we explored the technical capabilities of other materials, the original cotton canvas line was reintroduced in the Spring 2017. We have set the scene for a line of bags that will stylishly accompany you as you navigate through life, whether casually dressed for urban exploration or for adventures at remote retreats in nature’s great outdoors.

Army/Dark brown

A mainstay of the Mismo collection, the army cotton canvas paired with dark brown bridle leather was the first color combination launched when we introduced bags combining fabric and leather back in 2008. The army color and the tactility of the cotton canvas evoke English aristocracy and wildlife hunting, and the fabric’s water-repellent coating helps create a luxurious patina over time. Casual yet sophisticated, the army cotton canvas with its earthy tones of grey, green and brown is a true wardrobe staple.

Fabric description: Tight-woven cotton canvas
Leather trim: Dark brown - Vegetable tanned full-grain bridle leather

Midnight blue/Cuoio

A cotton canvas featured in that deep navy blue hue that only the Italians seem to get right. It exudes tactility and sartorial elegance and is a most welcomed treat to the permanent collection. As with all our fabrics it has undergone a water repellent treatment that makes it reject immediate stains and liquids. Combined with cuoio bridle leather for a casual sense of chic as well as solid brass hardware and navy lining.

Coal/Black

The Coal canvas is a well-tested fabric that we have used several times before. Forest Night and Ocean Blue from previous collections may ring a bell for some. Set on a cotton warp and nylon weft, the fabric offers the better of two worlds: the tactility of the cotton and the durability of the nylon. Add to that a soft backing, which gives the fabric the perfect weight to ensure a strong and natural draping. The hue has great depth and won’t fade much over time due to the nylon. We believe this is the ideal black fabric for luggage and will be surprised if it doesn’t become a true classic. We at least intend to keep it. Paired with black bridle leather and solid brass accessories, Coal canvas is ready to enjoy a permanent standing in the Legacy collection.

Fabric description: Cotton & nylon blended canvas
Leather trim: Black - Vegetable tanned full-grain bridle leather

Khaki/Black

Khaki canvas paired with black bridle leather is a combination that keeps growing on us. The earthly tones of the khaki canvas with a hint of green and brown paired with raven black bridle leather create a masculine yet very classic contrast, drawing references to vintage army uniforms. Beautifully held together by the gold lustre of the solid brass accessories.

Dandelion/Cuoio

Same trusted cotton/nylon fabric as used in our permanent Coal/Black combination, but here presented in a delicate yellow tone with a slight hint of green that instantly sets the mood for Spring with the arrival of the dandelion and the rape fields in full blossom. Set on a cotton warp and nylon weft, the fabric offers the best of two worlds: the tactility of cotton and the durability of nylon. Add to that a soft backing, which gives the fabric the perfect weight to ensure a strong and natural draping. Paired with cuoio bridle leather and golden brass accessories, the combination provokes a 70’s feeling yet still reflects an instantly attractive modern look.

A new Mismo/Limonta development, this wool & cotton jacquard tells the story of a farmer and his fields from a bird’s eye perspective. Set on a beige wool base, green cotton roads cut through the farmlands in a way that anyone who has seen a Danish landscape from above will recognise.
Random patches of satiated green nylon add playfulness to the artwork and in combination with vegetable tanned cuoio bridle leather, the pattern evokes a burgeoning sense of Spring in all its glory. A solid canvas weighing 930 grams per running metre, making it the heaviest fabric in the collection this season.

The nylon yarns used for the jacquard weaving merge a sporty look with a sartorial feel, presenting different weaving techniques within the fabric that seems ever-expanding. The fabric is designed following the same recipe as our moonlight blue fluffy nylon, bonded to an equally thin nylon article with foam in between to give it a light and airy feel.

Bindingsværk/Black

A Mismo interpretation of the old timber-framed farmhouses and barns across the Danish landscape. A tribute to a craft of the past and to sweet pastoral childhood memories. The fabric itself is just as intriguing as the inspiration it draws on.
A lightweight front fabric composed of traditional cotton and linen is bonded to a thin nylon backing with a little in-between foam – the same technique we use for the fluffy nylon fabrics, such as moonlight blue and beluga. On top of that, screen-printed graphical elements inspired by timber-framing with a black rubber-like resin paint in natural combo with black bridle leather and sleek gunmetal accessories. The present meets the past in this hyper-complex and graphically striking fabric.
