Known for his daring and unconventional leather-accessory design, Ukrainian fashion designer Konstantin Kofta has just released his latest collection of leather bags and clutches. Kofta likes to draw inspiration from natural shapes, like seashells and parts of human anatomy, which he then transforms into fully-functional garments and accessories. Bearing the title “ARXI”, Kofta’s S/S 2016 collection takes the designer’s approach a step further, by incorporating and inspired by forms and imagery found in Baroque architecture.
Although only in his late-twenties, the Kiev-based designer has already succeeded in becoming a household name in fashion with his leather accessories that challenge concepts such as functionalism & wearability through their unconventional forms.
"Designer Konstantin Kofta combines rural and urban perceptions and embraces the unintentional and unexpected, which provide inspiration for current and future collections. Each collection appears as a form of art installation. Konstantin Kofta believes that the perfect is hidden in the sacramental places away from an ordinary vision littered by common standards." - Konstantin Kofta Studio
