LCD Soundsystem's Nancy Whang Makes DIY Music AND DIY Handbags


BYOB by KARA is a (build your own bag) pattern series designed by the NYC-based handbag label. In each feature, designer Sarah Law sits down with creatives both Opening Ceremony and KARA are obsessed with to design a unique bag based on necessity, inspiration, and, of course, personality. The pattern and instructions are then shared via WeTransfer to provide others the opportunity to create the bag at home. All materials should be something you can buy yourself, and if not we'll provide alternative recommendations. Oh yeah, we strongly encourage adding your own personal touch.

With Coachella days away, it only made sense for our fifth installment to feature LCD Soundsystem's founding female, Nancy Whang. Ahead of the band's reunion tour, we caught up with the keyboard artist to design a bag inspired by their signature dance-punk sound.
