A life spent between New York and New England has inspired a handmade collection of leather goods made in Italy.
Grey New York Grey New England is inspired by the lifestyle of our creative director, Simon Kneen who lives between a New York loft in the heart of Manhattan and a colonial farmhouse hidden in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. Grey New York reflects the dynamic sporty side of the city whilst Grey New England the refined quieter side of the country. Our double barrel name plays off this and our brand consists of an exclusive selection of leather accessories designed with the city and the country in mind. All handmade in Italy.
The Grey New York side of the collection has a distinctly sporty edge, designed in smooth, supreme quality German leather with multiple zip pockets and high performance neoprene lining. The handmade craftsmanship of each piece is inherent in the shapes and design details. The use of stitching techniques, painted edges and matte hardware reflect the modern and dynamic lifestyle of the Grey New York side of the collection.
The Grey New England pieces use unique shapes formed by simplified folding and minimal seaming with double-faced pebble leather from Italy. The construction is unlined crafted with hand finished painted edge seams whilst refined hand tooled palladium hardware is used on the hidden zips and detachable straps.
Each piece is identified with our double barrel name through an embossed leather label with additional silver leaf applied by hand to highlight the side of the collection the bag or accessory is specifically designed for.
