TheBétaVersion is presenting a limited edition collection for the summer. Known for its handmade leather accessories, the brand develops their concept introduced last season: their goal is to develop a broadening family of everyday pieces which are highly functional yet extraordinary at the same time.
Collection WHITE is defined by the mix of urban rhythm and the geometrical patterns of traditional Hungarian textiles, which have been present in TheBétaVersion collections for long. Designer Zsófi Rainer has been deeply inspired by the photo series of photographers Bert Danckaert and Daniel Büttner. She was astonished by their urban landscapes deprived of the sense of space with randomly juxtaposed pieces of architecture, and adored the interplay of graphic surfaces and colors creating exciting rhythm and patterns.
Influenced by the photo series, Zsófi almost unwittingly started to look at her hometown, Budapest in a more perceptive manner. She discovered thousands of thrilling details, which she had passed by day by day without recognizing their peculiarity. The discovered motifs – such as the roofs of the main Market Hall and the Technical University composed of Zsolnay ceramic tiles, or the delicate patterns emerging from the red bricks of the Madách Houses – matched the direction laid out by previous TheBétaVersion works. WHITE collection as a result transmits the very same joy of contemplation and discovery which led to its birth, through the harmony of clear-out design and elaborate details.
The collection dominated by a creamy white shade consists of true summer basics. Casual bags are made of thick cowhide, while envelope clutches, purses and belts are made of patent leather of the same colour. The brand’s trademark perforated, geometrical patterns are accompanied by brass accessories, while vivid coral, turquoise and sunglow colored details give a summery vibe for the monochromatic pieces.
The collection is available in TheBétaVersion webshop!
