ONAR PRE-SPRING 2017 COLLECTION
ONAR is a Helsinki-based design house established by Irene Kostas in 2014. ONAR, which means “dream” in ancient Greek, specialises in high-quality shearling clothes and accessories, leather bags and knitwear. ONAR is the fusion of unlikely matches. In the collections soft materials meet geometric forms, richness of texture meets minimalism, organic meets plastic and the stark Scandinavian lines meet the mystical.
ONAR draws from the traditional craft of Finnish and Greek artisans. All items are handmade in Finland and in Northern Greece, in areas which have taken pride in their skilled leatherwork for centuries. ONAR uses only ethically produced Italian shearling and 100% vegetable tanned leather.
For it’s first Pre-Spring collection Irene Kostas, the founder and designer takes heritage techniques perfected in her family for generations and adds her quirky style and musical inspirations – all items are named after Irene’s favourite producers and artists.
The pieces are handcrafted in Finland and Greece from prestigious Italian leather and high quality shearlings with all materials being ethically-sourced vegetable-tanned and 100% chrome-free. Prices start from £110 for small accessories with full shearling bombers starting at £1000. The collection will launch online and at Fenwick Bond Street this October.
