We met with Renee Hooker, the designer behind the bag label This is Architecture along with Mo Kheir, responsible for the marketing of the new label for a private viewing of what can only be described as an exquisite range of hand-folded leather art that is both practical and inspiring.

Motivated by a desire to apply the knowledge gained from her architectural studies to something on a more intimate scale, the bags are as interesting in their construction as they are on an aesthetic level. Made entirely from folded leather, there is not a stitch to be seen, with the only additional form of structure coming from metal eyelets, chain handles and decorative studs. The bags are beautiful from every angle and come in packaging that is equally as stunning. Check out the range below. The bags are available from Black Box.

  1. I wish I could have made it to the launch - I had a peek at the lookbook last month and was blown away!
