ACCESSORIES/BAGS:

LINE

When glass skyscrapers make us tilt our heads up and our eyes
unintentionally trace endless roads, we experience the purest urban element
of all – the line. Invisible yet inevitable, each line alters the rhythm of
the city in its own unique way.

The LINE bag and clutch were created for the ultimate urban minimalist. She
longs for simplicity yet her look is always searching for something
differently complex. She doesn’t believe in coincidences yet the most
beautiful things she sees are completely unexpected. She sometimes feels
like one those city lines around her – almost unnoticeable until you look
deeper and dare to discover where it leads.

LINE is a concept of blending in and standing out at the same time. The
bags feature precise, line-inspired design and can be suitable for both day
and night – elegantly ladylike or convenient cross-body. Each bag was
created and hand-made in a small design studio using only European leather
and metal details.

UNICUM

A paint brush is a language in itself. A bold statement when done in heavy
black strokes. Or a subtle message if carried lightly over the surface.
Whichever form you choose, it always has meaning and emotion hidden in the
movement of the hand.

UNICUM was introduced as a project which connects artistic inspiration with
everyday forms and shapes. Each bag, even if extremely functional, is a
wearable piece of art, covered in hand painted patterns. Since every piece
in the collection is completely unique, it becomes a personal manifesto of
the wearer.

The bag design is based on a modern cylinder shape interpretation and the
handles provide a touch of transformative functionality. Each piece can be
updated by adding a miniature painted pouch for cards or other small
belongings. UNICUM was created and hand-made in a small design studio using
only European leather and metal details.

FORM

In terms of design, minimalism is never just the result – it’s the process.
Complete reduction of the unnecessary and emphasis of the fundamental. The
only thing that truly matters is the basic shape and purpose, in which true
beauty is born.

FORM is an intellectual nod to modern asceticism – the ultimate expression
of perfection and slow, thought-out creative approach. The bag, simple in
its look and complex in its construction, is meant to be the one and only
accessory for contemporary minimalists.

Pitch black tone, spacious interior and transformable straps let the wearer
to change the bag according to daily needs, from morning to night, without
sacrificing the functionality. Each bag was created and hand-made in a
small design studio using only European leather and metal details.
