Can you imagine have a piece of the Fontana di Trevi, or the Russian Winter Palace right in your pocket? Or better would we say, have this piece like your bag.
I know, sounds surreal, but the Baroque is here to keep your tablet and personal stuff with you.

The exaggerated motion, drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, all this make part of the huge artistic style that began around 1600 in Rome, Italy, and spread to most of Europe.
Inspired by all the adjectives that integrate the description of the Baroque art (triumph, power, control and for sure, opulence) the Ukrainian designer Konstantin Kofta has created a collection of bags and backpacks that mimics the Baroque architecture. His collection called Arxi, draws lines and sculptural curves, dramatic and natural of the sixteenth century buildings. Decorative elements of a gray stone facade are here applied to fashion. The materials used and portray the illusion of concrete.
“Kofta” it’s the name of his own label. This brand combines elements that seems to be contradictories by the outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. His pieces are cataloged like sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable.
The irregular shapes and unique scents integrated to rural and urban perceptions, and embraces the unintentional and unexpected are part of the vision of Konstantin Kofta which provide inspiration for current and future collections.
He believes on “the wholeness of natural form indicates that the form and forces are always in some sense of equilibrium”. And in “each collection appears as a form of art installation”. Konstantin Kofta believes that the perfect is hidden in the sacramental places away from an ordinary vision littered by common standards. Designer strives to fuse unusual components to achieve distinctions that add to person’s lifestyle rather than just to the wardrobe.
