The mini door bag, €495 from My Name is Ted

1. Open door

Following the success of its door bag collection which debuted at last year’s Brown Thomas Create, My Name Is Ted has introduced a cute, more compact version by way of the mini door bag, €495. According to its designer Brendan McEvoy, the cross-body bag’s unusual vertical shape both emulates Dublin’s iconic Georgian doors and gives added convenience; featuring dual all-round zips, integrated card slots in the front panel and solid brass rings to externally attach essentials such as Airpods or hand sanitiser.
