After Alex attended one of my events, I fell in love with his excitable attitude, and eclectic style.
Considering his love for little bags, I felt it presented the opportunity for a perfect collaboration. Alex designed the mini fur rucksack with clashing furs and colours, an amazing representation of masculine and feminine, traditional and innovative. The backpack suits him perfectly, and we can recreate it for clients in any colour combination with fur and leather, it really is a bespoke collaboration piece that can adapt to any owner.”
I’m so proud to introduce my first collaborative piece and honoured to have worked with Rebecca so closely on the whole design process. More information on the collaboration launch will be found on my Instagram @alexguiste and on Rebecca Bradley London @rebeccabradleylondonfur.
As a big supporter and fan of fur, this collaboration seemed almost natural from the first talks I had a couple of months ago. For over a year I have worked with Rebecca Bradley and her team, representing her brand and highlighting the youth and versatility that fur brings to the table. For me, modernisation is key and Rebecca is a clear example of someone pushing forward and changing the way in which fur is used and interpreted. The collaboration has brought together our unique perspectives to create a interesting and striking bag. My affinity with small rucksacks and handbags was the starting point, and the combination of using my two favourite furs, mink and fox, was translated perfectly into the final creation. Delicate yet versatile was the aim and it works just as well being carried as it does sitting on the back. A singular thick leather strap means there are no lose straps and keeps their presence minimal, highlighting the exquisite construction and vibrancy of the backback. The pink and brown colour way is a classic and timeless pairing, a perfect blend of femininity and masculinity which emulates my personal approach to fashion.
The Alex Guiste Mini fur rucksack is now available for bespoke order.
