Autumn is here and winter is just around the corner and today we are launching three new strap collections for you to enjoy on your favourite watches.
We offer these straps in limited quantities and some will be short runs – so make sure you place your order before they sell out!
As ever, all our straps are hand made by our craftsmen in Italy from only the finest hand selected leathers.
Urban Instinct takes its inspiration from classic and timeless design that we see around us every day. Our adventures take place in all aspects of our lives and our Essentials for Urban Survival are here to accompany you and become part of your story…your legacy. Our cities and towns are growing and spawning movements that are inspired by arts and culture.
The Icarus Collection
Icarus was an ancient Greek mythical character, the son of master craftsman Daedalus. King Minos of Crete commissioned Daedalus to build him the Labyrinth to imprison the mighty Minotaur. Daedalus helped King Minos’s enemy, Theseus, survive the Labyrinth and kill the Minotaur and was himself imprisoned in the Labyrinth. To aid his son’s escape from Crete and King Minos, Daedalus built a set of wings for Icarus to wear and fly away to safety. Icarus was warned not to fly too close to the sun, but he did and his wings were scorched and he fell to his death.
The Icarus collection features straps inspired by this story of legend – the heat and warmth of the sun, the power of the King’s Minotaur and Icarus’s burnt wings.
These straps range from deep warm vibrant reds akin to the sun to burnt orangey reds and vintage browns. The collection features a mixture of classical stitching and rough finishes which make the Icarus collection a fusion of elegant and refined straps combined with pieces featuring dramatic elements of an almost scorched patina.
The Moorland Collection
Inspired by the British countryside and the adventures that can be found amongst the moorlands in these autumnal months. The sound of a vintage Land Rover Defender, the feel of the well-worn stock of an English made shotgun. The warmth of your bespoke tweed jacket, the smell of the damp earth and heather. The eerie mists rolling through the valleys, the tang of the aged single malt whisky as you take a nip from your antique hip flask.
The Moorland collection is a collection of straps featuring the colours that we see around us when at one with nature – greens and brown – and the tones found in vintage camouflage patterns.
We are also officially launching our new unique strap design – The Blade. A new concept for this season, with a special edge profile inspired by antique hunting knives.
