The ‘Concrete Genezis‘ collection was met with great interest when it debuted at Tranoï during Paris Fashion Week 2012. Designed by Budapest-based concrete company, Ivanka Studio, the collection encapsulates the raw aesthetic qualities of cement - a material these innovators know well but that we don’t traditionally pair with the world of couture.
Each piece in the fashion and jewellery range is constructed from a suite of textiles customised to emulate the roughness, grey palette and undulating surfaces of concrete in its varying forms. A range of elegant bags and accessories combine the concrete textures with glossy leathers to further rock our conventional ideas of the material.
