When we wrap up ourselves in one of her tartan plaids, when we cross one of her scarves around our neck, we can feel all this, but what we are struck by is the softness of the materials. No dirty mixture which itches the neck thus. Moreover, her universe is hyper coherent, punctuated with architectural, graphical but also floral and cinematographic inspirations.

After graduating from the Victor Horta Institute of Architecture in Brussels, Michael Guérisse O’Leary studied leatherwork at Les Arts et Métiers de Bruxelles under a master craftsman from the Maison Delvaux. In his designs one can see architectural influence subtly expressed through geometric and sculptured forms. Each piece is carefully handcrafted with great measure of care in a constant pursuit of perfect proportions, simplicity and unconventional beauty. The collections are inspired by master architects and designers such as Andrée Putman, Gae Aulenti, Gio Ponti, Richard Serra, Alvar Aalto. 

As a tribute to his grandfather, he decided to name his brand after him. Albert Guérisse was a member of the belgian resistance during the Second World War. After Belgium was forced to surrender, he escaped to Great Britain to continue the fight under the cover name of ‘Pat O’Leary’. In London he met secret agent Sylvia Coopersmith, working for Military Intelligence. He eventually married her in 1946. Pat O’Leary went on to organize one of the biggest escape routes of the Second World War. 

 

 

With Rwandese origins and working from Belgium, Munana Gatera first studied fashion design, before becoming a male model and travelling the world getting in touch with all sorts of images, leaving him with lasting impressions. From this pool of creativity, the artist draws his inspiration, as a painter, to create compositions filled with subtlety as well as dynamism, always mixing abstract and metaphorical patterns.

Under the name of Gatera, the artist keeps on creating formidable art that brings out a certain profoundness whether it is in his drawings, patterns, or other forms of design. Munana Gatera is designing a range of unique stoles. Fully fledged items of clothing, they take their inspiration from Munana's research in painting, mixing vibrant woven patterns, interlaced designs, fluid lines, or plant drawings in black and white. Given flowing movement by the fabric, his original prints achieve complete harmony with the silhouettes.
