THE FIGHT FOR POWER
With the current tensions in the world between East and West, this collection has been created from deep rich tones of golden yellow, merlot, navy and bottle green. These regal colours were paired with a pure white leather to symbolise a hope for some sort of peace.
Styles are warrior-like in form and a crossing of craft techniques sees developments in surface detailing of etching and scoring of the leather through the use of woodworking tools. An introduction of Neoprene fabric adds flexibility to the more rigid styles and is used as a base for body accessories worn on the shoulders and on the waist.
