Do you ever feel like a sandwich bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?

If so, you can now live out that feeling with a fashion line from Japanese fashion label BEAMS Couture.

Theyve collaborated with Ziploc to create a range of sheer accessories embodying your childhood ham and cheese sarnies.

As part of the nine-item collection there are bags, hats and an umbrella.

The standout piece is the apron, though, because who doesnt want to serve streetwear realness while serving lunch?

The most expensive item is a backpack retailing for ¥14,040 (£99.66) but you can get your hands on a little branded polka-dot pouch for only ¥1296 (£9.20).

Like the iconic lunchtime receptacles everything is clear, which does have the disadvantage of meaning everyone can see your stuff.

If youre a certified hypebeast, though, youll probably only carry a designer wallet and cold brew coffee on your person, so no harm no foul.

BEAMS released a shopping channel parody video on YouTube to show off the range, which is silly and fun enough to make fun of itself while still seeming impossibly cool.

It also highlighted the fact you can drink water out of the bags. Multi-use, yo.

Ziploc x BEAMS Couture debuted at the brands store in Shinjuku, Tokyo, from yesterday, and will be available online from Monday 20 August.

Or – and were not suggesting this will have the same cachet – you could always grab yourself a few clear bags from the supermarket, and fashion your own knock-off version in the name of frugality.

Bringing your lunch to work is the first tip when it comes to money saving, so why not encompass it in your style choices too?
