SONYA LEE IS A CREATIVE DESIGN STUDIO;
committed to communicating the language of leather through experimental approach and progressive structure.
Drawing from carefully selected materials and industrial hardware, the expressive nature of our organic medium forms the singular identity of each hand constructed piece. The intention is to produce an alternative to conventional design where raw elements refine modern functionality.
A subversion of post-industrial norms through raw elements and refined craftwork, this distinctive ten-piece offering of handmade bags and accessories represents a physical concept in practice.
Through designer and founder Stephanie Ibbitson’s multifaceted approach to art, architecture and contemporary perception, Sonya Lee selects the highest quality vegetable tanned leather as its preferred medium for creativity. Revealing the marks of time and decay throughout its history, the expressive nature of this organic material shapes the singular identity of each silhouette.
Among the selection is the Carver backpack featuring the drawcord bucket-style equipped with durable strap closures and polished silver hardware, while the androgynous Justus duffle evokes fundamental purity with its utilitarian beauty. Geometric lines define a transformative range of shoulder bags, totes and handbags to complete this inspired offering.
