Collection – Cities & Stories. A/W'17-18

Biggest super cities in the world, full of liveliness and energy, where motion doesn't stop 24 hours a day. World centers, where people become the most important connecting elements. Today it's Tokyo, tomorrow New York, in the near future Sydney. kARTu A/W'17-18 was inspired by people, by those who find the perfect balance between the city chaos and the harmony of everyday routine.

We found our very own, familiar „Metropolis“ here, at the heart of Kaunas. For the collection editorial we simbolically chose the nostalgic, art deco style hall of the legendary hotel. “Cities & Stories“ symbolizes modern, city rhythm inspired elegance, plays game of colours, presents unexpected shapes and silhouettes but holds to the subtle, minimalistic design elements. Balance from the new perspective, combining details that look contradictory at first, creating fresh, cosmopolitan city style rules.

kARTu was found in 2014. Our design studio located in Kaunas, Lithuania, introduces a minimalist alternative to real leather accessories with a hint of our favorite spices. Harmony of flavours and Baltic minimalism are the distinctive features of kARTu bags. Let’s play and taste – Sandalwood, Chocolate, Vanilla… These are not only names of kARTu bags but also their characteristic qualities. A pinch of bitter spice savours not only food, but style as well. All kARTu bags are made from genuine leather and designed for urban pulse and style that propagates personality, it is for someone who enjoys savouring their everyday style and appreciates quality. Spices are subtle: not everyone likes it. However, a good style chef would not hide this spice deep in a cupboard. Every kARTu bag is carefully hand-crafted and flavoured with the most positive emotions only.
