Spring/Summer 2013 sees inspiration being taken from Russia, and more specifically Russian dolls. The idea of bags that have a multi-functional purpose, bags inside bags that can detached and used separately or designs that silhouettes that can be changed to be worn in an alternative way.

Softly structured bags are complimented by the interesting use of experimental fabric manipulation by combining textures, patterns and different types of materials into the designs. The signature style of recycling is evident throughout, giving materials a second life making these more attractive than their original form through careful consideration of placement and attention to detailing and finishes.

The shapes are simple and classic but the key aspect of the range is the combining of textures & patterns into designs with functionality. Textile techniques such as leather edge piping, smocking and rouching are teamed with clean-cut silhouettes. The styles are angular in design, looks with geometric cuts and bold statement patterns. Leather is worked with incisions and perforations, combining polka dots and strips and different textures all in one style. Hues of black, white, grey and navy are to the forefront but are subtly accompanied by touches of small accent colour in detailing and contrast straps.
