Influences of modernity, minimalism and functionality have set the boundaries for the Studio Candice Lau's creative language.
Studio Candice Lau is a brand of leather bags and accessories. Marrying the contemporary with traditional the brand is a culmination of a love for design, and a passion for working with traditional methods of leatherwork. This collection of leather products is influenced by my observations of people in the cities which I have lived, as well, the multifaceted meaning of colours around us. Often through a single, perhaps colourful accessory that one wears in an armour of more often then not black attire, it enables the hidden dynamic and unruly self to slip out. Hence this collection offers that subtle dynamism, but yet in amongst the small drama of the colourful collection is elegance, design and staying true to my craft of leatherwork so that each bag remains to be individually handcrafted using Italian leathers and British Millerain canvas in my London workshop.
