BEHIND THE BRAND
ANOIR is very unique line, it has an inspiration of noir, surrealism, myth and deep artistic conceptualization. Avant-garde with modern and Scandinavian taste mixed with deep emotion of journey, reality and future; it is meant for a very intellectual class of people. The design of the collection is mostly unisex bag and artisanal clothing and made of industry surplus leather, natural cotton, hemp, silk and various natural fibre. Thus supporting re-use,sustainable,slow-fashion and anti mass production/consumerism. The whole collection is handmade and developed in the artist’s studio. It focuses to hold the time for a while and make the consumer lure into the darkness of the art pieces.
