Camoshita United Arrows SS13 Preview - Pitti Uomo
I got lost at their stand, not only for the outstanding upcoming pieces but also because of how welcome Mr. Camoshita and everyone else made me feel.
Boglioli Blue event held @ Biblioteca Braidense, Milan
This was a preview for the upcoming collaboration with Takuji Suzuki’s ts(s). Also present was Wooster looking impeccable as usual…
A closer look at why Edwin denim is so heavily praised right now: the attention to detail and to each specific item sets them apart from so many others…
In a joint effort to help the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake, Italian masters Boglioli and Japanese brand Kolor are collaborating on a superb, limited and exclusive jacket. Only 600 pieces will be available worldwide and part of the profits will be donated to Save the Children Japan. The jacket itself is a perfect blend of both brands, taking Kolor’s short, snugg cut and Boglioli’s exquisite fabrics and craftsmanship. Soon available at Por Vocação and other select stores worldwide.
Daisuke Iwanaga - the man behind Cornelian Taurus
Japanese designer Daisuke Iwanaga’s leather goods have been receiving some much deserved international praise. Focusing his research on traditional Japanese themes (such as samurais) and drawing inspiration from the environment surrounding him, Daisuke is able to deliver fresh designs each collection, all while trying to step his techniques up a notch. It’s this devotion and continuous desire to improve that makes his pieces some of the most unique and appealing out there.
Taking a unique approach to his craft, he seeks the best horse hides and along with 2 co-workers is able to produce the much hyped goods (namely handbags), by means of what appears to be an entirely manual driven process. If you ever wondered what goes into making high end bags, or what justifies their steep price tag for that matter, take a look at the following videos featuring Daisuke’s workplace and manufacturing process.
