OTTONE

Established in Milan by Korean born designer Banya Kim, OTTONE is a contemporary brand creating edgy handbags for all the lovers of minimalism and artisanal craftmaship. “Ottone” merges OTTO – the Italian name for the number 8 – and the Korean suffix NE – meaning “House of”. The result is a powerful combination of Oriental esthetics and Italian design: the number 8 has a strong value of harmony and geometrical beauty. The essence of the brand is a well balanced combination of high end materials, a passion for details and the research for timeless design. The minimal yet refined constructions, built on solid volumes and elementary geometries – squares merging into circles and vice-versa – defines a strong image with a precise character, completed by pure colors. Ottone bags and accessories are completely designed and produced in Italy by the best artisans and made out of the finest leather combinations and completed with polished metal details.

Pure geometries, the beauty of perfect circles and a passion for simple yet elaborate shapes are the foundation of the SS19 OTTONE handbags collection. Straight lines move like waves like those produced by sound on still water. Perfect natural curves merge and multiply, moving towards feminine concepts and beauty. Girly and funny volumes are rendered in soft grain leather with subtle yet refined details. Simple contrasting stitches, evolve from construction ribs into decorative devices, defining shapes. Marbled plastic hoops, recalling the brands’ nature, grace the new Kyra model. A pastel based palette generated by a natural, mineral inspired set of colours goes from denim blue, from pale mauve to dark caramel in combination with pitch black. Strong VS Soft tones detect a precise yet playful mood.
