For Autumn 2010 Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair worked with Swedish luggage maker Alstermo Bruk, known for their quality trunk cases.
“Alstermo Bruk is one of Sweden’s oldest companies dating back to 1804, renowned for their classic travel cases, made with high craftsmanship and professionalism. The collaboration with Fifth avenue shoe repair begun with a number of show piece bags, designed exclusively for the fashion show Spring 10.
For Autumn 10 we find two new styles that put the symmetry out of order. The inspiration comes from utility cases such as instrument cases and are based on the idea to deconstruct the outer shape but still keep the classic detailing and finish of Alstermo Bruk. The material is a so called amo-fibre with leather details and an interior wooden frame, lined with a vintage check wool fabric.”
The cases are exclusive to Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair Stores and their online store.
