This piece in grainy nappa leather takes inspiration from the 20th century aviator style jackets, with wear these tended to shine or crack, revealing the background colour.

To replicate this effect, the use of specific resins and waxes prevent the perfect adhesion of the colour to the leather, this effect is then further enhanced by hand. The colour is then blocked through unique finishing techniques. This process makes each leather slightly different from each other and each garment one of a kind.
