Another prototype is done. This handbag represent how I imagine the expression of final collection. The bags can be flat-packed and assembled by the user or the seller. All the parts are put together with screws that can removed and changed. That makes a very dynamic and leaves room for customization and easy repairing.
The Materials are just sketching materials. The final material will be vegetable tanned leather natural colored and black. The inner bag will come in various materials and styles according to collaborators of the season.
I finished first prototype of the upcoming bag collection. It’s made in recycled leather, which acts a bit different from real leather. The intention is to use real leather for the final bags.
The inside bag has to be in a stiffer material, but i think you get the idea. I need to make some corrections on the bottom of the leather part. It drapes a bit weird.
Otherwise I’m quite content about at this point. Next model will be better! 😉
Concept sketches: The concept is to divide the bag into an inner bag consisting of fabric and an outer bag in leather. The inner bag follow the fast fashion principles while the outer follow the slow fashion principles. By this the bag bridges the transformation from a fashion industry with overconsumption and unnatural pace to a more responsible and sustainable approach.
The inner bags will always be designed and produces in collaboration with other designers and textile producers.
