everything & nothing

Acclaimed Irish-born, South London-based luxury
accessories designer Úna Burke whose ”Italian
vegetable tanned leather” bodypieces are visually
enthralling and technically challenging, comes with
a new collection through gorgeous images.

Her 'Everything and Nothing' s/s 2014 collection
that was launched at Paris fashion week's 
Premiere Classe, a true must for accessories designers,
appears to be more feminine and refined whilst
keeping in the sculptural impact she's known for.

Since graduating, Úna's sculptural works came to
magnetize the eyes of fashionistas earning thousands
of devotess worldwide and have been styled and
photographed by prominent figures and 
worn by show biz celebrities.

The delicacy of construction (every single piece is wholly
handmade in her own leather atelier) as well as the soft
color palette of the collection have been captured this time
in a campaign signed by a widely encountered talent that's
definitely rising through the ranks of today's fashion
photography: highly esteemed Madame Peripetie 
who cut translucent shapes to reveal the details 
of Úna's newest creations.

Her sculptured bodypieces, leather belts, jewelry and
stunning clutches with a star-shaped pattern bearing tiny
metallic details look gorgeous, easily wearable and less
stagy: ”each piece fits the body beautifully and it has been
carefully and slowly allowed to evolve on the mannequin,
almost as a sculptor approaches a sculpture” she wrote
in her Paris invitation telling... everything and nothing.
