Every season from Kofta leather bags has a very strong statement, whether it be Drama from last Autumn Winter which celebrated the structures of both nature and architecture through the Fear collection for this Spring Summer which engages with the beauty of the emotion.
This latest collection RHX11 looks to a future, perhaps not so distant, in which the human race is no longer the dominant intelligent life form on the planet Earth. Even in the images below, you can see the traditional human model has been replaced by a robot. As you can see in his previous work, Konstantin Kofta's bags more closely resemble works of art. For this season, traditional Kofta methods have been used on circuitry and other machine parts to craft these stunning leather pieces, showing how our bodies and mechanics will possibly work together in the future. I had the chance to ask how he does this when we met in Paris and learned how much work goes into each bag.
Humankind is not the first and not the last intelligent race on Earth. Erenow, blue blood was flowing in the veins of living creatures. Blood is nothing but a liquid metal. Accomplished technology is indistinguishable from the magic. Mankind was transformed himself and knowledge into artificial intelligence. Existence becomes smarter and faster, it achieves an ability to adapt for radical global changes. The Era of Mankind is coming to its end. -Kofta
