... Ahhh... the smell of leather... Forget smelling for a minute and take a look at Rosa Mosa, a leather collection designed by the Austrian designer Simone Springer and Japanese designer Yuji Mizobuchi. The two designers met when they attended The Cordwainers College in London. Sticking to their design philosophy of converging tradition with innovation, all Rosa Mosa products are made by artisans just outside of Vienna, using time-honored craftsmanship in creating contemporary items.
“We think ourselves as laboratory of playfulness and innovation, therefore we do not treat materials the way they are normally treated. We discard their function and disclaim their memories. What remains are the materials in its purest state, a sort of archetypal module or ‘ tabula rasa.’ From there we begin. Only this way we are able to apply our often unorthodox treatments. The results are multiple mutations, filtered and gathered. We experiment, innovate; we don’t follow fashion – we push forward," the designers explained during an interview with Fashion Window Paris.
They also said that the shoes are a little bit ‘raw’ and that's what makes them beautiful… Their approach is highly conceptual, very contemporary, achieving unusual effects with leathers and tweaking traditional silhouettes for a look that's totally modern... Nice yummy brown leather indeed...
...ANYONE GETS 'TURN ON' BY THE SMELL OF NEW LEATHER???
