L and R signs are featured on the handle adjusters just like a pair of headphones. The original Bao Bao Issey Miyake accessories collection launched in 2000. The design was a continuation of the Miyake’s experiments with fabric and construction, with the idea that the more rigid triangles would create 'shapes made by chance' when the bags were moved or placed on surfaces. In collaboration with legendary Japanese guitarist, designed guitar and his own music and notes and put his LP/cassette tape into bags. The music are covers of rock standards.
