A special capsule collection for 2019. This collection is a key example of Edward's considered approach to sustainable fashion. By recycling existing products that are no longer wanted, in this case used leather motorcycle apparel are turned into one of a kind bags that will last for years to come and are considered heirlooms by Edward that should be past through generations, doted and cherished by each. The capsule is very limited but will be added to through out 2019. Each bag is a piece of sculpture just as much as a it is a utilisable product, no two are ever identical.
The majority of the bags created utilise the functions of the original garment. A few examples are using the main zip closure of jackets to function as a size adjustment on the bags; keeping all the usable pockets and reinstating any zips or straps as size adjustments.
