Matter Matters - Inspiration looks to Post Modernism, Art Deco, the school of Memphis and design recalling Bauhaus and Cubism. It's great when accessories are made to last, or, to put it in the words of Flora Leung. Born in Hong Kong and trained at the London College of Fashion, the first Matter Matters collection was designed to stay stylish from year to year, with high-quality leather and straightforward.
As the name implies, the choice of forms and material are the essence of its design. Inspired by the colours of David Hockney and Edward Hopper, themselves two modern classics, Matter Matters' First Collection proves that substance never goes out of style. The designer Flora Leung is a graphic designer from Hong Kong. Leung was the creative director of a celebrated vintage luxury accessory store in Hong Kong, where she served as head buyer. She simultaneously worked as a freelance graphic designer and as art director at one of the biggest advertising agencies in Hong Kong. Flora then attended London College of Fashion with an eye to creating her own label. Flora was also named graphic design student of the year while at Birmingham City University.The retro style of her collection and her taste for classic luxury are influenced by Leung's six years as buyer and creative director of a high-end vintage store. Leung believes fashion accessories design begins with understanding the relationship between product and life. A bag is not just a container: how it is carried, held and opened are all design essential elements.
The inspiration behind this collection is based on the simplest graphic shapes: triangle, square and circle. This collection is crafted on the philosophy of striking geometric forms and contemporary basics with fine materials.
