The Art of Shopping – Contempo Casuals

My retail bag collection started when I saw this Contempo Casuals paper shopping bag from the early 1990’s for sale and couldn’t resist. It was like I ran into an old friend who I kind of forgot existed. Contempo Casuals sold modern, colorful, chic and sexy wardrobe pieces to the girls who dared to be different. The store took this bold fashion and incorporated into their retail packaging. As you can see the result was pretty amazing.

“I started working pretty early—at 14, I got a job at Contempo Casuals, which was this store where I thought all the pretty girls worked. They sold really flashy clothes.” Rachel Roy, Fashion Designer (Into The Gloss, 2016)
