ONESIXONE shows how comes alive the language of the artist. The creative process of each artist is the main character of each collection: the exploration that occurs beforehand, the development of the concept and the final work. This is the result that allows the artist, the leather craftsmen, the tanners and the designer to celebrate the creation of a collection. Each bag becomes a mirror of the artistʼs mind, his ideas, his experiences and how he understands the philosophy of the brand.
The artist chooses techniques, the materials, colors or shapes and decides whether these items are simply containers or if they contain themselves. Each collection, each bag has its own history, its own space. Exploration and inspiration, arts and crafts, wellness and individuality were the criteria and principles guiding ONESIXONE. The rigorous tradition of high quality craftsmanship and the transmission of emotions through hands.
In the collection I have created for ONESIXONE, I merge the figures of the Aurea circle and the symbol of infinity. Two geometric patterns that speak about eternity and the existentialist philosophy built upon the idea that there is no beginning and no end. They both symbolise, as well, the invisible connection amongst all things in the world.
Basing my selection on basic colours and tactile sensations, I have gone searching for the silent beauty and timeless elegance. Behind this collection, echoes from my former creations can be heard: gold craft works based on the Japanese technique “kintsugi”, handmade metallic crocheting, endless pin fields which invite you to touch... in short, the recreation of a dreamlike world that speaks about life and the common mysteries to any human being existence.
