Designer introduces bag inspired by famous building

Reflecting a growing popularity of mixed genres, fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi has unveiled a tote bag and scarf set inspired by the New York Times building.
Just in time for the spring, Mizrahi paired the red twill and leather bag with a tangerine hued silk chiffon scarf and a bright yellow New York Times signature medallion, according to Luxist.com.
Providing a perfect illustration for Coco Chanel''s quip that fashion is architecture, and that it is a matter of proportions, the color combination was inspired by the New York Times building designed by architect Renzo Piano.
Only 600 bags are available exclusively through the New York Times store.
Mizrahi''s new creation represents a larger trend in fashion inspired by architecture.
Recently, renowned architect Frank Gehry, who designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, teamed up with French luxury shoe company J.M. Weston to design two pairs of ankle-high leather boots.
Earlier this year, he joined designers such as Paloma Picasso and Jean Schlumberger to promote a sustainable jewelry collection which utilizes coral alternatives rather than authentic material harvested from the oceans.
