Transparent bags have been trendy lately — but never have they been this practical. The Ziploc bags you use in your kitchen every day are now a high-end fashion accessory thanks to a collaboration between Ziploc and Japanese fashion label BEAMS.

The line includes everything from transparent backpacks to umbrellas, all equipped with iconic Ziploc plastic bag elements such as the Ziploc logo and pink and blue snap closures.

This video from the BEAMS YouTube channel will give you a sense of what the collection has to offer:
