Urban Travel + Isabel Wong is a collaboration of two independent British brands bringing their creativity and innovative ideas together. Their story began with a chance meeting in a concept store in London, an exchange of contact and soon after a partnership was born.
Urban Travel's ethical ethos and practical design elements complemented by Isabel Wong's minimalist design process has ensured a wearable and transitional collection of luxury handbags. A capsule collection inspired by the concept of continual line - combining geometrical shape and subtle curves while maintaining a clean aesthetic through carefully considered materials and finishings. These bags are made in London from high quality Italian vegetable tanned leather complete with premium gold plated hardware for a long lasting, robust yet elegant product.
The 'Evo' bag is an exploration of shape, proportion and innovative design. A play on asymmetry through line placement, contrasting colours, layering and construction technique; all while retaining a simplistic uniform box shape that is both practical, wearable and visually appealing. The choice of materials and finishes, limiting visible stitch lines where possible and the application of a concealed magnetic front closure, emphasises an overall clean, minimalist aesthetic.
