YOUR INSPIRATION

I love the fabrication combo of my previous entry so much, I wanted to explore how it could evolve in an interpretation of the button bag shape. This design makes the one button the hero and features handy slip pockets for quick access. Warmed leather and burnished brass begin to gleam with new colours over time. Smooth hide sides let it snuggle around your elbow as you crusade through your day. The light black speckle complimenting the nearly black leather. Just add denim for an effortlessly chic look.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

Antique Brass finish hardware is the highlight of this bag. You could build a range around this finish. Brass is the new metallic. Brass tells a story, it blossoms with age, forming a multi faceted finish over time. Each angle you look at it from presents new hues. It's the holographic for the sophisticated woman.
Buttery soft leather compliments - would consider different hides eg goat / cow / pig... to balance ultimate softness with durability. Wanting to incorporate a leather that ages well to compliment the patina that will form on the Antique Brass hardware.
Nearly black leather adds edge.
