Coperni's Time Travel: Back to the Future

on October 20, 2023

In recent years, a remarkable trend has emerged in the world of technology and fashion: a revival of once-obsolete gadgets and formats, modified to suit contemporary tastes. Among the nostalgic items making a comeback are the Gameboy, Tamagotchi, VHS-C, Nintendo, Super Mario, Tetris, Y2K, DiscMan, Microdrive, iPod Classic, and CD-ROM. 

It's fascinating how these relics of the past are finding new life with subtle modifications. Around the years 2007-2008, the CD lost its dominant position as a data storage medium. The compact and practical USB pendrive had become a sufficient means of carrying data, making the once-ubiquitous frisbee-shaped CD obsolete. 

Fast forward 16 years, and in late September, at its own fashion show, Coperni revealed an astonishing model – a DiscMan reimagined as a stylish "Swipe bag." The CD-PLAYER Swipe bag is a playful and somewhat ironic piece, a testament to the insatiable nostalgia of the 21st century. Hardcore fans can dust off their old CD collections, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay albums, and that Blink-182 disc that's been stuck in a hi-fi tower since 2009. Placing them in the CD-PLAYER bag allows you to revisit the music of yesteryears in a unique and retro-chic way. 

However, the Coperni's recently introduced swipe variations – which is now available in our store – came with practical updates. Among these, the most exciting piece is undoubtedly the Baguette Swipe Leather Bag featuring a painting of goats and a stream, which is "GOAT" in every sense of the word. With its exceptionally cool appearance, success is guaranteed anywhere you go. 

The swipe bag (whose oval silhouette is inspired by the minimalist 'swipe-up' icon found on most mobile phones), while less conspicuous, boasts a useful development in the form of a crossbody version that can be worn over the shoulder or across the body, freeing up your hands from lugging around a bag. The range of colors has also expanded, with shades now including glossy white, sand, silver, and pale pink, alongside the classic black for most basic models. If you're looking for the tried-and-true iconic designs, you won't have to search for long. The swipe bag comes in two sizes: the Baguette Swipe Bag and the Ring Swipe Bag, available in its classic size in the Spark le Monde collection. 

Feel free to pair it with a sand-colored top from By Malene Birger or a pearl necklace from Gisele B. For footwear, Veja is always a great choice, but for more elegant occasions, the Flattered boots make an excellent addition to your chic outfit.
