Shuang Lin - Serena Bags

Finalist of the The Young and Adventurous Lifestyle Backpack by Guess Handbags

People's Republic Of China

2017 Finalist Shuang Lin Serena Bags


What is your inspiration for this sketch?
I was inspired by Guess's signature jeans design to represent a young and adventurous lifestyle. I think the design with denim jeans is the strongest and the most iconic approach. On the other hand, I would love to have the asymmetrical shape in my design.

Why did you select these particular materials to work for your sketch?
Denim and leather

What is your design background?
I am an on campus student who is majoring in Industrial design M.A. and Accessory design M.A. right now.

Do you currently design your own handbags collection? If so, would your GUESS? Design fit into your current line?

What materials do you normally work with?
Leather and Fabric.

What can you offer to the GUESS? aesthetic?
Based on my industrial design background, I could be able to solve problems efficiently and creatively during the design process. I have good sketches, 3D model and hand making techniques which are all helpful in supporting my designs.
