IMAGO-A founder Yegang Yoo is inspired by the shapes of a city. The sophisticated and minimalist line of purses, wallets, and shoulder bags is characterized by splashes of geometric surprises.
Born and raised in Seoul, Yoo moved to New York to attend Parsons School of Design in 2000, and she’s lived in China, London, and Milan, too. But South Korea’s capital leaves a deep impression. Her designs reflect a distinct structural influence; origami-esque creations attract a crowd that’s nothing if not chic—Lady Gaga has been spotted with one of Yoo’s Prism bags. And whenever she returns to Seoul, she soaks up the spirit of a city with endless opportunity.
