Here’s an exclusive first look of the Arnoldo][Battois F/W 2011-12 collection that will be presented from 4th to 7th March 2011 in PARIS to Premiere Classe – Jardin des Tuileries . Take a look at the larger shots after the jump and let us know which bags will be on your wishlist.
Handcrafted workings for dynamic architectures, volumes made in precious mat leather, color of the
leather extended to accessories made of brass covered with glossy enamel: it’s a femininity that does not
need to flaunt its complexity, it’s a softened, impalpable, light luxury.
Details of pleated clothes, in the memory of Vionnet and Mariano Fortuny, repeated and calibrated to
give life to bags in soft mat nappa, weavings of flexible structures covered of a membrane in mat suede
that defines the body shape, modulation of bellows in aniline calf to a new interpretation of classic
saddlery, evocation of the primitive power of distant peoples in the bags in Tibetan goat.
Leitmotiv is the constant attention to details and careful search for innovative solutions: ships ropes that
turn into soft interlace nappa for ergonomic handles, cutting and stitching are composed in a fluid
dynamism, handmade workings allow to rediscover the taste of Italian crafted product.
Lizards, crabs and elephant made of brass leave the ancient Venetian doors turning into special closures
or unusual attachments for handles: experimental varnishing allows them to merge with the nappa as
Chromatic atmosphere inspired by the colors of the earth, Nordic wild and arid landscapes, expanses of
Tundra with its infinite shades of mosses, in a range of colors that turns from brown to bordeaux, tuber
and mustard in darker shades, with mineral notes of slate, cobalt blue and ruby.
