ling wu bags

When I attended the media preview of Ling Wu bag’s fall/winter 2014 collection, I was captivated. Captivated by the talent of local Singaporean designer Ling Wu, in her creative use of materials such as luxurious leathers and exotic skins to create buttery soft and supple silhouettes that are both versatile to carry and on trend.

 

Educated in London at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, Ling Wu oversees the entire production process, from designing the shapes of the bags to the sourcing of the leathers where she often travels overseas to manage the hand-treated leather process and finer details in each individual bag.

 

The upcoming fall/winter 2014 collection features a recent innovation that has taken nearly two years to perfect – Svelte Python. Produced using a unique rubberising technique, the exotic skins are given a velvety soft touch while at the same time reinforcing it with long-lasting qualities.

 

Unique finishing to the skins is what makes a Ling Wu bag special.  A laborious ‘bottle-rolling’ technique is employed whereby the skins are literally rolled with glass bottles by hand to produce a soft, shiny surface that still retains the beautifully organic texture of the scales. After the skins have been bottle-rolled, a special glaze coating is applied to the surface to seal and protect the skins.

 

Here are a few of my favourite pieces from the upcoming fall/winter 2014 collection hitting stores very soon!  For more details, check out the Ling Wu website here.
