MCM created a bespoke case for a priceless 18th century cello owned by German virtuous cellist Jan Vogler . The case was made in order to celebrate Jan Vogler’s participation in the 34th Dresden Music Festival. MCM’s Master Craftsman handcrafted the cello case in MCM’s workshops in Munich. We recommend you to have a look at the video below, which shows the process of making this unique piece.

The Product Sheet is the document that contains the information that leather goods manufacturers need in order to make a leather item. Needless to say that a very detailed Product Sheet will facilitate the work of the manufacturer, the product will be made faster and the concept of the leather item will be interpreted in an easier way.
 
Sometimes, it is not easy to express an idea on paper. That’s why leather goods manufacturers also appreciate the inclusion of sketches and photos of the inspiration that led the designer design that particular item.

In another post, we will share the Product Sheet that we are using in our workshops and the information that we need from each leather item. For example:

Last week, Betangible had the opportunity of attending the fashion show of the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp . When you see fashion shows like this, you realise that fashion schools play an important role in the training of the emerging talents that will eventually become the creative directors and designers of new successful fashion brands. Fashion schools are also the breeding ground for creativity, new proposals and a “safe area” for taking risks. Although we did not see many leather accessories we really had a great time at the show and saw several interesting designers to follow. We are also happy that shoes are getting more and more importance in the show. We just want to recommend our readers to visit the website of the fashion show… you will see very interesting proposals.

Today, we want to present you the second interview on Betangible. In the first interview, a leather goods manufacturer responded our questions about the work they develop in the leather workshop. Now, it is the turn of Belgian brand Les Deux de Cock which, in spite of its short trajectory, is becoming more and recognised by its timeless geometric simplicity of the styles.

 

Betangible: Who are Les Deux de Cock”?

Les Deux de Cock: We are two sisters from Antwerp, Belgium. The label started in 2009.

The handbags have an architectural and monumental character by the way the leather is stitched. The inspiration for the structures is the square. By the repetitive use of the patterns, the bags obtain a tight simplicity. In some models it creates a strong 3D effect. We have created “quirky collection” where creativity and originality prevails.

When people are asked about luxury, they tend to say words and concepts such as “Exclusivity”, “Unique”, “High Quality” and “Craftsmanship”. Luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Mont Blanc have always worked hard so that their target public can associate their products to the above concepts. Today, we want to share with you two examples of these communication campaigns that worked very well. They are clear examples that tradition, heritage and savoir-faire are highly valued in the so-called “Luxury Universe”.

Betangible had the opportunity to attend today’s presentation of Sibling’s AW11 Collection 6 at London Fashion Week. We got delighted at some leather details they used in the collection such as the leather shoulder pieces, the knitted scarf with a leather belt closure and the leather closure of some pockets.

From Betangible we encourage Sibling to keep using leather in their collections. Perhaps, this is the beginning of an long lasting relationship between Sibling and Leather. Will we see Sibling’s leather accessories shortly?
