VAN DER ROHE bag in Berry
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 Approx 117cm.
This version Is Berry for the body, with contrast tabs, black bridle leather strap and a wonderful grey tassel zipper pull.
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.
Brass hardware is solid, not a cheap alloy that's plated.
Made using an exceptionally high quality Italian vegetanned cowhide and a RiRi Swiss zipper.
