People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it’s safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs. – Alexei Sayle
People who know me, can vouch for my love of leather. Read about my favorite Leather Jacket, here. It might come across as being heartless and quite a few take offence, no doubt. But in a world of meat eaters and leather shoes, I tend to feel the argument is drowned out.
With leather, along with the design, it is quite important how the product is crafted. Does it feel soft to the touch, will it develop character as it takes a beating over a period of time? All of these questions are quite important because more often than not, anything you pick in well crafted leather is bound to stay with you for a while.
One such brand that I was recently introduced to, is Viari. I actually ran into them when I was looking for a laptop bag to take to work online. They retail on Koovs. And ironically, that very same week, I got an invite to preview their collection at the Viari store in Bandra.
Their spread is quite elaborate, like breakfast buffet in an up market Hotel. From classic to rugged, neat lines to chunky strength, office wear to something you would need when you go on a safari. Dont believe me? See how Viari got rugged with bikers who were braving the fluctuating weathers.
The designs by London based Silas Grant are young, the products feel great to touch and feel, the buying experience is quite pleasant. I have found a worthy option, the next time I go looking for a backpack or wallet that isn’t boring.
What do you make of their designs? Have you checked out Viari online? We are interested in your opinion, which you can leave behind in the comments section.
