Arnoldo][Battois Spring/Summer 2011

Handcrafted workings for dynamic architectures that are in-spired by the natural world, precious materials softened by treatments that make them rubbery and mat, color of the le-ather extended to metal details: it’s a femininity that does not need to flaunt its complexity, it’s a softened, impalpable, light luxury.

Rigid structures in mat python that bridle, like shells, soft suede bags, details of pleated clothes isolated, repeated and calibrated to give life to bags in soft mat nappa, weavin-gs of flexible structures covered of a membrane in auburn python that defines the body shape, modulation of bellows in aniline calf to a new interpretation of classic saddlery.

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 ailow to rediscover the taste of Italian crafted pro-duct.

Lizards, crabs and elephant made of brass leave the an-cient Venetian doors turning into special closures or unu-sual attachments for handles: experimental varnishing with talcum powder allows them to merge with the nappa as clever chameleons.

Chromatic atmospheres absorbed in powdered neutral co-lours, some light gray, powder pink, with a bit of cold copper and coral.
