As you may know I am a fashion design student. One thing that you would say is pretty recognizable in my designs or works as a stylist is that I use leather to almost every design or outfit. Why? Beats me! The love I have for leather pieces is something I have yet to uncode. Now when this girl with this huge love for leather pieces gets the chance to work with a brand that creates unique handmade clothing pieces isn't this a match made in heaven?
Needless to say when the daughter of the designer -and handcrafter -contacted me to work with them I said a big'ol YES to the offer and got the chance to shoot some amazing leather pieces of art! We worked together for 3 total looks and this is the first one. This leather skirt is handmade and the fabric is 100% leather *****
The brand is called Senso Del Lusso and if you remember from the previous post they provided me with the accessories of the '70s editorial. They own two shops, one in Athens (Galatsi, Veikou 60 & Kithnou 1) and one that is open on Summer time in Zante (Tsilivi - Planos, Zakynthos). If you are in Greece you can shop at the store or visit their website www.sensodellusso.com and buy their products or have a design you want handmade by the designer. For those that are far away the brand is finishing the final touches of their online shop! The types of leather they use is: sheepskin , merinos and Toscana.
From the site:
"A family business open since 1980, our store offers a wide variety of products.With a wide selection in jackets, bags, clothing, scarves etc..The paper outline patterns are made by our designer Marietta Mylona as well as other well-known Greek designers and feature a variety of colors and different types of leather and fur.
