Bryan and Miguel are talented photographers and stylists with whom we had the chance to collaborate with several times for editorials magazine and creative shootings. Myriem Himmich, talented photographer and Samia ( @thelslstory ) also participated in this event.
This event was the first of a long series in the United States, where one of the founders, Mustapha, settled for almost a year now. “ When we announced the Cap 2K19 we had stated our desire to develop creative collaborations and offer more event on a phygital model, so we are thrilled to have open the calendar with this amazing New York Event “ said, Alice, Mehdi and Mustapha.
The Event in London was place under the sign of the customization!
Alice, Co-founder and “ Chief Creative Officer “ of the brand animated a customization workshop on leather.
This event took place within the Wolf & Badger Store of Coal Drops Yard, a new restaurant, store area located 10 minutes from King Cross train station.
The Black & White collection was presented as well as the main pieces of the Brand’s next FW19 collection.
The promise of an interactive and immersive event was held by setting up for a free customization workshop on leather.
The participants discovered in a first place the drawing techniques on paper to get acquainted with the mediums used ( POSCA, painting on leather with a brush ) then start painting over the pouch.
« This experience allowed us to create a special relationship between our creation and our guests. The drawing experience on leather can trigger self-confidence because you have to start without a net in an unusual practice! The whole first part was dedicated to handling and trust in itself – Such an unique experience! “ Says Alice – “ There was no level of design required to participate in this workshop – everyone was free to participate”, add Mehdi and Mustapha.
This Event experience will be replicated in the future.
