OPERA AUSTRALIA • ONLINE

Published three week ago • 29/11/13

Bag designer and maker Matthew Thomson was quite taken with the open brief, despite having only heard bits and pieces of Wagner’s music before he took on the project. “It really fits in with my style of work. I like the idea of needing to come up with something that is aesthetically appealing, that ties in with a particular event, with a particular location and a particular event in time.”

Matthew designs and hand-stitches a range of functional bags for his label, Mattt. The carefully made bags often feature unique digitally-printed fabrics. In this case, he has reproduced two sections of a spectacular artwork used as a backdrop at different times during the Melbourne Ring Cycle.

The result is a small range of shoulder bags, iPad sleeves and zipped pouches that each references some of the spectacular design aesthetic of Opera Australia’s first Ring cycle.
