Relative Overexposure by Omtura

Relative Overexposure” collection SS`16 was presented for the first time in Paris during Men’s Paris Fashion WeekHandmade leather bags designed by Omtura are inspired by minimalist architectural lines and shapes combined with aspects of tribalism. Each item – an artifact, a power object, holds a craft known only to its owner. With straight diagonal cuts, carefully placed details and traditional handmade craftsmanship – no piece is the same.

The crafting of handbags is an underrated artistry, one that designer, Anton Edelshtein, of the Israeli label OMTURA, employs seamlessly to blur the space between body and accessory, turning bags into true extensions of people. Using inspirations from varying sources, particularly the spiritual source of shamanism and more contemporary sources of urbanism and futurism, Edelshtein has found himself with a characteristic style of industrialistic minimalism that focuses intently on the craftsmanship of pieces. Intent on creating pieces that recharacterize accessories and how they are perceived as secondary to clothing, Edelshtein uses fine leathers and metalwork to construct bags of unparalleled dimensions, rendered complete with complex ornamentations.

Paying fine attention to detail, Edelshtein ensures that every bag finds itself maintaining a crisp silhouette, a glossy shine, and the tasteful impenetrability of armor. Each bag, though similar to each other, is unique in their craftsmanship, while their functionality is unmatched with generous adornments of pockets. Whereas the functionality for most handbags is compromised for aesthetics, Edelshtein ensures that this is not the case with his label. The inventive usage of leather harnesses as both embellishments and practical straps for the backpacks adds an edgier twist to the aesthetic of the collection. In maintaining an industrial look, a level of rough minimalistic intricacy can be added to any outfit with OMTURA’s signature bags. Edelshtein’s capabilities as a designer enables him to create with an exceptional level of complexity and detail, signature to the OMTURA label.
