Gallery Label
The 2002 Bags collection by label Slow and Steady Wins the Race was intended as a commentary on the craze for high-profile designer 'It bags'. The collection featured bags made from plain cotton muslin or canvas twill, distilled to the basic details of hardware and shape as a testament to unchanging good design.
