You wouldn’t think you were in need of a new lunchbox until you find one that fits your personal style. On the other hand, leave it to a handbag and accessories designer to bring some flare into your midday snack break.

Anthropologie recently brought on Parisian-born bag designer Clare V. for a collaboration across the popular store’s housewares department. One of the partnership’s featured products is the Bamboo Melamine Bento Box. Yes, this is probably one of the chicest lunchboxes you’ve seen today, but it’s also an eco-friendly option for days you take your lunch to work (or bring home leftovers). The traditionally-designed bento box has a two-tiered structure to hold your entire meal. Plus, it comes with an elastic band to ensure your food remains, well, boxed up.

The design behind these cute lunch carriers is actually centered in Parisian art history. Per the Anthropologie site, the entire collection is inspired by Pablo Picaso’s life and artwork when he lived in Cannes. Plus, the bento box style is derived from Clare’s own summer vacations on Île de Ré. Offered in three colorways, you can shop the bento box for $18 exclusively at Anthropologie. See the colorful lunchbox options below:
