“The bag was inspired by the Fall 2012 collection that has just arrived in stores.  The collection was inspired by Pedro Almodovar’s movie The Skin I Live In.  So it was very much about contouring the female body and revealing and concealing.  We used a lot of zipper details in the collection and decided to contour the cosmetic bag in the same way.”—Designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs.
