Dripping in Luxury: Ethan K.

It's not often that we come across a designer who's pieces take our breath away. Ethan K. jumps to the top of the list in becoming a new obsession.

Using exotic skins such as crocodile and python in a masterful way, his handbags and accessories are truly an art.

It's a funny story how I came to find out about Ethan K. Despite his recent growing success, I was sitting on a terrace with a friend and we asked for the bill, she pulled out a beautiful ostrich leather tan coloured cardholder which is where I almost shrieked, where did you get that? I must know.

It's clear that Ethan has had a huge amount of experience working with exotic skins, and has an extensive background in design . Originating from Singapore, Ethan was raised surrounded by the work of his father who ran a family owned crocodile skins business. He has worked with the exotic skins team in Hèrmes, Prada and Louis Vuitton. As well as studying design at the prestigious London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins.

And... he does bespoke too...

So, are you drooling yet?
