pas de calais is collaborating with the renowned leathermakers Henry Cuir for our spring and summer 2016 collection. Henry Cuir began with Henry Beguilin, a Swiss man, who journeyed to Italy in the 1970s to learn artisan leathermaking from a saddler. Henry Cuir continues to source fine leathers from Tuscany and Spain and each piece is masterfully handcrafted in Vigevano, a town in Italy known for its exquisite shoemaking history. Like pas de calais, Henry Cuir is inspired by the poetry inherent in the natural process of dyeing, handmade production, and craft.
Here is a sneak peek of our Henry Cuir collaboration, photographed at our soho flagship.
