Q & A with designer MariusVisser
Finding your own voice is difficult, where and how do you find your personal creativity?
It just needs to be sharp and new.
How would you describe your work? What is your technique?
My bags are made out of beautiful materials. For me, that’s even more important than the actual bag.
What was the most important thing your parents taught you, that you now bring into your work?
My whole family is into design and architecture/interior. Being open minded is what they taught me.
What is your most favorite brand? Why?
Givenchy. Because they apply beautiful prints and they look into the future.

Looking backwards and forwards all the time.

Open a bag factory in the future.

Future and new.
