Painted Folded Washed 2015
Drawing inspiration from the leather and the ways it can be altered, andrew mcdonald’s new collection is a celebration of the Subtle and unique patinas created when leathers are exposed to the elements.
By Taking advantage of natural reactions like rust from Iron filings and The distressed, scrunched paper effect of washing the shoes and bags in water, a patina of age and wear is created.
The paint on the whitewashed shoes fades and ages as it would on a derelict building. Uniquely and quietly.
The folds in the leather wallet inspired by folded paper crease and continue to furrow with use taking on a new form.
With time, Each bag, pair of shoes or wallet will evolve and become truly unique, an individual.
Combining Leathers from America and Italy with hand made bronze buckles and metal details from Japan the new Andrew Mcdonald collection is a minimal yet raw range of shoes and bags for men and women who value subtle, well crafted style.
