Going for Baroque

“Natural forms and curves are applicable to human architectures,” says bag designer Konstantin Kofta, who’s incorporated ornate baroque architecture — replicating actual chunks of the stuff — in his spring collection of backpacks, tote, and clutches.

The Slovenian designer has revived the columns, busts, and other decoration of the dramatic period for spring and fall 2016, transferring them to sculpted leather — much like his unconventional recreations of skin, bones, and tar of seasons past.
