Israeli label OMTURA is handcrafted leather goods designed by Anton Edelshtein. Using inspirations from varying sources, particularly the spiritual source of shamanism and more contemporary sources of urbanism and futurism, Edelshtein has found himself with a characteristic style of industrialistic minimalism that focuses intently on the craftsmanship of pieces. In order to create pieces that recharacterize accessories and how they are perceived as secondary to clothing, Edelshtein uses fine leathers and metalwork to construct bags of unparalleled dimensions. With special emphasis to details, each OMTURA bag is unique and crafted with great functionality.

Florian Wowretzko - "Utrenja" A/W 2015

Leave a Comment

'Black on Black' is the immediate reaction of German born London based menswear designer Florian Wowretzko's Autumn Winter collection ‘Utrenja’. On a closer look, religious symbolism and geometric details are visible. Inspired by Krzysztof Penderecki's Utrenja  ,The Entombment of Christ' & ,The Resurrection of Christ' from the 1970’s are here clearly recognizable influences: The Orthodox cleric and the global religious conflict. Florian works as usual autobiographical. His interest in religion be paired with a little horror mood as in past collections are here present again. The cut determines the overall silhouette: tailored & oversized, geometric angles and clean lines, layers & squares. Wowretzko uses the cut of ancient cleric uniforms as the scapular, chasuble, flowing robes and the burka. The result is modern ‘paneling' with freedom of movement & elegance.

Daniel Andresen - A/W 2015-16

Daniel Andresen studied at Antwerp's internationally acclaimed institute, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts. After graduating with a masters degree, Andresen decided to explore his fascination with knitwear, combining natural yarns and textiles with supple leathers. A desire to expand on his knowledge of this niche industry, led to Andresens return to Belgium. Here, he undertook an internship with Sigi and Hilde Frunt, one of Belgium's most respected knitwear artisans.  In 2010, he launched his eponymous label.
Andresen's work is inspired by subgenres of rock music, sci-fi and post-apocalyptic action films and sports, but it also carries a lot of elements from numerous travels like the serenity of the sea and the creepiness of the desert. Each of his collection is story for itself, but it carries designer's life experience through it.
Complex with humble appearance.
