AB / A Brand Apart, the leather accessory brand pioneered by Italian designer Andrea Brà is taking us deep into the forest of mythical desires this season. Known for its utilization of traditional handmade practices and meticulous attention to detail, AB / A Brand Apart never fails to awe us with their one-of-a-kind pieces.
Details quote the Latin phrase “Omnia Mea Mecum Porto,” which translates to “All that is myself I carry with me.” One can envision themselves as a traveler both romantic and contemporary, who moves through untrodden and mysterious space and time. The bag one carries with them is an extension of themselves, drawing from both organic forms and forms of utility.
Brà’s spring line “Enchanted Forests” uses symbolism and color to honor his source of inspiration, drawn from “the magical and dream-like atmosphere of the witches from the XVI century.” The stark, deep colors and metallic detailing create a unique fusion that looks toward the future in as much as it references the past, using artisanal practices to create simultaneously fashion-forward and timeless works. And they are positively drool-worthy. You can shop our collection of these works here or in-store now!
