Inﬂuenced by the spirit of LA, the edge of London and the balance and simplicity of Japan, the brand new KIKIITO collection of luxurious, contemporary bags has just launched with a cornucopia of silhouettes and carefully curated, unexpected touches.
Strong, passionate, simple and always authentic, the KIKIITO focuses as much on how each piece feels as how it looks. Designed to accompany the wearer as she sets out to create stories and lives her own journey, the latest KIKIITO collection channels the brand’s culturally-diverse influences, inimitable Japanese heritage, and an unwavering passion for form and function with a compilation of bags that is at once simple and graphic in design, rich in luxury and strong in personality. Elevated accents, high-end finishes and unexpected detail sets this brand new collection of bags apart from any standard, luxury accessory.
From versatile mini bucket bags to generous totes, the SS19 look book incorporates pieces to suit every lifestyle, situation and satorial preference. Each bag is made in the UK and juxtaposes premium materials such as soft cowhides with the more urban neoprene, clear PVC is matched with confident gold trims and combines delicate detail with bold silhouettes.
The brainchild of Japanese-born, London-based designer Kiki Ito, each bag in the new collection references the time Kiki spends understanding both functionality and aesthetic design of her creations, and the impact that particular detail and usability can have on the final product, always envisagining the connection that the wearer has with each piece.
With a largely monochrome colour palette, the buttery soft yellow leathers complement gold metallic accents and trims perfectly. “I wanted to create a collection that will both lift and compliment any wardrobe, whether the wearer’s signature aesthetic is confident in need of subtlety or refined in need of a statement piece,” says designer Kiki Ito.
“The KIKIITO woman manifests effortless style, has a soft spot for sports luxe and does not feel that she needs to prove either her sense of style or understanding of what is in style, she just is.”
Prices range from £34 – £350. To view the new collection visit www.kikiito.com or follow on social media: @kikiito.
