Here some impressions of the ECCO Leather Open Circle Lab at the L.O.C.K area at the Bread&Butter. Originally a trade show to present new casual driven collections, the Open Circle Lab went for a collaborative approach and invited various international creatives to work together with leather technicians and leather designers. A hands on workshop environment where its all about uniting, creating and collaborating to push the boundaries of modern tanning.
Here Simon Watkins the owner of the wonderful Labour and Wait shop on Redchurch Street, selling timeless and honest design from hardware, kitchen utensils to clothing.
Here Michael, who works at the newly opened Ace Hotel in London, in his casual uniform including felted Ace Bomber and Black Dr. Martens boots.
Here Lotte Post and Korbinian Ludwig Hess at their newly opened shop Post & Hess where they are hand making made to measure shoes for men and also ladies. They took over an old established shoe maker shop, which has been run by Georg Steinlechner for 61 years, as Lotte and Korbinian are feeling strong about bringing craftsmanship and tradition into modernity.
