VAN DER ROHE bag in Cinder Black


This bag is made from a single piece of leather and designed to be your most useful everyday handbag. Created with the famous architect Mies Van Der Rohe's theory that " LESS IS MORE " set firmly in mind, St Leonards feels that this bag epitomises all that's good with a pared down and understated design philosophy.

What's the least number of pieces of leather and detail can I use to make something that functions as, and is recogniseable as a handbag. I'm not talking about going completely native and offering you a hankerchief and saying "Here you go, use this as your bag!" but for me, it's got a beautiful simplicity that will stand the test of time.

Embossed branding on the strap: ST LEONARDS - ENGLAND

Dimensions: 24cm high x 36cm wide. The 22cm zip opening is set into the front panel, not at the top. Strap: Fixed length is 117cm.If you'd like to order a specific strap length please order as normal but message K at to discuss your requirements.

This bag has no gusset but the supple nature of this leather allows the bag to elegantly "bulge" allowing you get a host of things inside, whilst still maintaining a lean stylish profile.
