Madewell x Paddle8 + The Bass Museum

Madewell and online auction house Paddle8 have joined forces on a project to benefit Miami’s Bass Museum of Art in celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach. Three female artists—Donna Chung, Denise Kupferschmidt and Caris Reid—were tapped to create 10 unique designs each to cover Madewell’s signature leather “Transport” tote.

Kupferschmidt, whose practice features highly-stylized compositions in the mediums of drawing, painting and sculpture, opted to hand-paint each bag with sleek, geometric and rather minimalist patterns in her signature black-and-white. Reid also hand-painted his bags with palm trees atop a black-and-white checkered background, while Chung collaged each bag with three-dimensional found objects.

Madewell featured one of each bag in the windows of their Miami store on Lincoln Road today in order to entice Art Basel shoppers. The bags are for sale on Paddle8 here, and proceeds will support The Bass Museum Programming. Now go shop for a cause!
