About the collaboration, Sergei Sviatchenko says: "My first encounter with Mismo was in the fall of 2008 and it sparked a powerful momentum. I observed the bags' effortless simplicity, always constructed with severe quality. I liked their appearance then and I like it now. To me, MISMO simply fuses functionalism and quality. Furthermore, by adding their knowledge of durability to very traditional fabrics, MISMO bags also have a “collectable” value." As an artist, I work a lot with collages. Through these, I see the world as a kaleidoscope of “cut offs”. The images chosen for our collaboration reflect the utility found in the simplest solutions and wholly support the understated individuality of MISMO accessories."
