Sang A Fall 2011: Python, Painted & Perforated Leathers
Last night at Mixed Greens Gallery, Korean pop star-turned-designer Sang A Im-Propp showed off yet another solid collection. While we so often see a quilted concoction--not that we would complain about toting a classic Chanel 2.55 or Marc’s Stam bag--it was incredibly refreshing to find a mix of leathers and textures done in a cool way. There were embroidered and painted pieces paired with perfectly perforated leathers and buffed python. The “Flash” bag--a collaboration between Im-Propp and artists Daren Newman and Sam Hardy--proved to be a winning idea.
