Fall/Winter 16


Taking inspiration from past and present, Winter 16 presents an array of soft skins and hits of metallic. 

I was captivated by the idea of celebrating subtle texture expressed by natural skins. I explored the idea of uniting a very traditional material with modern hardware so one is referencing the other. Chokers in more exotic skins are unusual, and that is part of why I loved working with salmon leather. As a byproduct of the fishing industry, I felt that sourcing salmon skin as part of the collection sends the important message that supporting more sustainable practices is vital to move forward into a more conscious tomorrow.
