PROJECT: Luxury up-cycled hand bags - Clio Peppiatt Feb 2019 - June 2019 London UK My most recent freelance project with London based luxur y womenswear brand, Clio Peppiatt. Clio approached me last year with the great idea to create a couple of luxur y womens hand bags from old leather motorcycle race jackets. The brief was to design some accessories using mood boards she sent me as reference, and after a design review and selection, go on to start developing and manufacturing some luxur y bags from the leather jackets that she had sourced. It was a fun and challenging project. Working with second hand materials that have already been worn is ver y tricky as its hard to predict how the material will react to being worked with. For instance when you’re cutting the pieces for the bags out it can stretch or tear in different places dependant on what’s seen the most use.
