WANTED: Grey + Red Drawstring Bag by Persephoni

p1

Grey + red make for a sick colorway, especially when it comes to a drawstring bag like the one above.  But when you add a metal base, that just makes it a ‘Must Cop’.  The ‘Grey + Red Drawstring Bag’ by Persephoni, selected by Valery Demure, is handmade + lined in grey suede.  The bag fastens with its red leather drawstring, featuring a single shoulder strap, also in red.

What I love most about this bag is the juxtaposition of both hard + soft at play here.  The soft grey leather bag looks as soft as ‘buttah’, but the geometric aspect of the metal base just makes me sigh with enthusiasm.

The ‘Grey + Red Drawstring Bag’ by Persephoni is now available at Valery Demure.

Unique Haute Couture Eyewear

 

wowglasses

Getting back to the basics of traditional Italian haute couture, Sandro Gonnella devised an original approach to eyewear with Ozona®.  Combining innovation with tradition, where haute couture is applied to eyewear combined with state-of-the-art technologies, Gonnella has created beautiful pieces, at times considered to be wearable sculptures.  Made of what appears to be several layers, until the desired design is achieved, the end result is very striking.

wowglasses1

Handmade in Italy, what makes this eyewear so unique is how the design grows from the client’s idea without any predefined model.  Gonnella’s genius creativity sparks the design, resulting in different prototypes, to get the ideal frame.  The eyeglass frame continues to remain in a raw state + only after having found its owner, will it be refinished in the atelier.

Made of high quality Italian acetate, the frames have a more natural feel, making them extremely lightweight, hypoallergenic, very flexible + durable.  But besides having bespoke eyewear, confidentiality is key, guaranteeing no reproductions of your unique Ozona® sartorial glasses, + who doesn’t love that?!

For your very own unique pair of Ozona® eyeglasses, go to Wowcracy.
