This collection is dedicated to the 'Box Pleat'. Historically used in the Scottish Kilt; a traditional skirt worn by men and boys of various tribes and clans in Scotland, dating back to the late 16th Century. Each piece incorporates box pleats or darts (featured on the 'sporran' - pouch/pocket on front of kilt) as a stylistic and also functional feature. Function to create the expansion of each bag as each pleat open up, the user gains more accessibility.
This is Solomon Appollo's interpretation of the classic men's briefcase. It is inspired by the 'Sporran' part of the kilt which was often made of embossed leather and fur (I have replaced with pig suede). Top handle with the flap over is secured with a large gun metal lock and key. The lining also incorporates box pleats and a large zip pocket. Delivered in a branded protective dust bag.
