A Kind Of Guise started off as a student project during the summer of 2009. What was first nothing more than creating stuff for friends and relatives, soon developed into something much bigger. From those beginnings up until today, we’ve simply tried to continue doing what we love.
While things happen on a larger scale these days, most of the influence we draw originates from our close surroundings. Our first collection consisted of bags made of leather leftovers from an old medicine ball factory in the north of Italy. Today the range of our collection has grown, but we still try to keep the whole production unique and, primarily, as local as possible. Hence we work closely together with only a few select German manufacturers, choosing from local material and always keeping an eye on functionality and quality.
The collections of A Kind Of Guise feature a mix of a wide variety of styles, putting effort into every piece’s uniqueness with a special focus on color and detail.
Most importantly, we want to create long-lasting products with original ideas and great quality. Each item’s wearability is as important to us as its integration into the collection as a whole.
And no worries, we’ve done this before.
A Kind Of Guiseは2009年の学生プロジェクトより発足。それから今日に至るまで愛するままに継続してきました。物事は大きな規模で変化するが、私たちが描くヴィジョンは近い環境から由来しています。地元の生産背景と素材を選び、常に機能性と品質に拘りを持って働きかけています。私たちの最も重要な事は、独創的なアイデアと優れた品質で長く愛用される製品を作り続けることです。
