Spring/Summer 2017 Inspiration
For Spring Summer 2017, Officina del Poggio seeks adventure filled with exotic beaches, wildlife, and nature. The collection bags are both functional and unique, taking inspiration from safari bags and round shapes of straw bags from the 70s.
The classic colors of terra, marine, black and white in the tumbled grain leather are matched with the soft tones of smooth vacchetta, as well as exotic floral tones and metallic leathers in irridescent shades of abalone shells. Soft geometric shapes, in resistant leathers and unlined constructions, with pops of color in the lining and handpainted edges, represent the DNA of ODP, for an elegant and relaxed lifestyle.
In this very same vein, the iconic elements evolve into styles based on rigid structures. Using a special artisan technique, the same way that rigid luggage was once crafted, ODP creates wooden structures which are covered in leather, with special linings and magnetic and snap closures: The Mini Safari, a new style inspired by vintage binocular cases and military bags, is the season's must-have.
The Buckle Tote takes on a new vertical shape with the unique asymmetric adjustable buckle shoulder strap, allowing it to be worn over the shoulder or by hand, presented in both the tumbled grain leather and also smooth vacchetta. The new Tamburo bags, premiering in two sizes, are inspired by 1970's shapes where exotic meets urban style, with removable straps and the classic details of the ODP buckles and contrast leathers.
