Sarah Williams’ Crafted Fashion

Posting has been light here at The Experts Agree, as we’ve been traveling. In honor of our travels, we’d like to introduce you to the fantastic luggage collection from Sarah Williams’ London College of Fashion master’s project Crafted Fashion. Its mix of funhouse distortions and solid worksmanship is really amazing to look at — oh how I would love to own one of these.

“Historically exceptional craftsmanship was the norm now it is the exception.”

The collection is designed to challenge this statement by utilising regional historical craftsmanship and metamorphosising the traditional in order to produce a collection of original fashion artefacts.

Throughout the whole design and production process three method of change were applied to the materials used; metamorphosis, presence and anthropomorphism. This results in fashion artefacts which relate both to historical traditions but can be used in a modern day context.

The Kelly Moore Bag

black-front_2 copy

We are planning a trip and I really wanted a way to carry my camera other than throwing it into a purse. Before Christmas I saw the Kelly Moore bag on Uppercase and thought it looked like the perfect solution. I was going to post about it right away, but the bags were all pre-orders, and I wanted to see if they were as great in person as they looked on the site.

Well my bag arrived and it is fantastic. I can’t wait to start using it. It looks like it is really well made and is big enough that I don’t think I’ll need to carry a separate purse on my trip. Plus, since is it way prettier than a normal camera bag, not everyone will know you have a camera with you. The bags come in some really great colors and she is working on a camera bag for men too, so soon there will be a stylish camera bag option for everyone.

UPDATE: Enter the code BLOGLOVE for $50 off a Kelly Moore bag!
