Double Takes: Swinging Underground

I’m officially back in Chicago and so badly wishing I had this bag for my trip. Called the Swinging Underground project, designer Caroline Woolard crafted a bag that substitutes as a subway swing and she fully intends on using it. In her own words, “I hope that the innocent amusement of swinging on the subway eclipses the atmosphere of suspicion and insulation that random searches (and the motto “if you see something say something”) produces. May playful engagement in public space provide a plausible alternative to the monotony of routine!”
