Hyper-Elevated Outdoor

Outdoor themes continue to inform accessory design, evolving to further complement the luxury market. Padded backpack and holdalls come in premium quilted nylon, finished with a satinised sheen whilst functional, detachable multi-pockets are adorned with fashion detailing. Practical accompaniments such as water bottle holders in performance perf are trimmed with leather and rendered in directional colour ways.

The Evolved Weave

Handcrafting moves away from rustic naivety and into the realms of the atelier. Intricate woven designs are amplified via a mixing of contrasting techniques, statement fringing and exaggerated proportions. Sumptuous leathers highlight the new premium feel with applications ranging from tactile bags and elaborate belts, to re-imaginings of luxe jewellery pieces.

Vintage Childhood Nostalgia

Fall winter accessories reignite childhood memories with sweet nostalgic references and vintage inspirations. Miniature, boxy bags use slotted constructions to reference school lunch packs, decorated with child-like doodles. A soft palette of retro tones and heirloom agate trims channel the luxury feel of the past.
