Take autumn in your stride with new-season knitted leather and luxe loafers from St Agni
Renowned Byron Bay-born lifestyle brand St Agni will this week release its highly anticipated AW19 collection. Known globally for its minimalist luxury footwear, St Agni’s new collection explores the equilibrium between masculine and feminine design – and this time, there’s a (literal) twist.
The curated 10-piece series introduces a world-first ‘knitted leather’ woven technique, which was the outcome of months of hands-on development between St Agni founder and designer Lara Fells and the label’s artisans. Each piece of footwear is knitted to shape using a manually operated loom, and then finished by hand to ensure the artisanal feel the brand is so revered for.
The collection embraces subtlety, with the design centered around showcasing the artisanal leathercraft behind each individual piece. Using hand-cut, naturally dyed, vegetable-tanned leathers, each St Agni piece has its own hand-made characteristics, while upholding premium quality.
The new St Agni collection launches on Monday April 1. More details can be found on the St Agni website.
