Skagen and Leather Projects Offer Modern Simplicity

Two colossal believers of minimalism and polished craftsmanship collide as one, as Skagen and Leather Projects announce a new collaboration. In continuation of Skagen’s effort to expand and grow its leathers category, the partnership boasts exquisite leathered goods including a men’s wallet and pendant watch, constructed in vegetable dyed Vaccheta leather from Tuscany, Italy then cut, hand-sewn, and finished in none other than Leather Projects’ atelier in Copenhagen. Founded in 2011 by the 27-year-old prodigy, Leather Projects has been practicing its handmade leather goods driven by Scandinavian minimalism and Kanso, a Japanese design principle that celebrates simplicity. It was such focus on eliminating excess and building clean and pure design that Skagen so closely identified with. The latter—founded in 1989 as a division of the Fossil Group—is a lifestyle brand that is centered on the same kind of simplicity, quality, purpose, and practicality. Ever since its debut, the brand has been continuously involved with partners around the globe that share the same aesthetic code, and this time it has finally found an ideal counterpart. Skagen x Leather Projects will be available this holiday season at Skagen stores globally and online.
