BUNNEY FOR LEWIS LEATHERS | CAPSULE COLLECTION 2015

London-based jewellery and accessories label Bunney have teamed up with legendary clothing label Lewis Leathers, to launch a capsule collection of special studded leather jackets together this month.

The anticipated collection sees the two well-respected labels unite and celebrate their Made In England production.

Crafted from sheeps leather (known for its soft handle and well-aging quality), the jackets feature era-specific zipper, bleached zip tape, and are decorated with espeically-placed solid silver Bunney studs. Each stud is individually hall-marked and hand-riveted to the jacket.

Both Bunney and Lewis Leathers produce only to the highest standard of quality, and are both influenced and inspired by subcultures: such as rockers, bikers and punks.

Lewis Leathers was family-owned until 1981 when the company changed hands to Derek Harris, whom had been involved with Lewis Leathers for over 20 years. As the owner of Lewis Leathers since 2003, Harris seen the company evolve and extend their creative horizons, even collaborating on numerous occasions with brands such as Comme des Garcons. By far one of the UK’s most enduring clothing companies, Lewis Leathers have “survived wars, dramatic changes in social history and the winds of fashion for nearly 120 years”. Collaborations are an example of the company always keeping their eyes open and evolving by modernising to their same rhythm, this time with a new beat.

Part of the newer generation of designers, Bunney was founded in 2009 by British designer Andrew Bunney. Combining his passion for artisanal production and subcultures, Andrew Bunney created the uni-sex line with a contemporary edge and philosophy. With production entirely executed with England’s skilled craftsmen, each piece of jewellery is hand-made and finished to the highest standard using traditional methods. Designs often reference subcultures such as mods, rockers and punks and their use of incorporating customisation. It is all about adding the timeless accessories to your own personal style. All about individuality!
