Australian design + Italian skills + London vibes

ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in Sydney, Steven Harkin went from 80’s Australian leather craft to contemporary design when, while teaching in Canberra, he started experimenting with unconventional materials, forms and colour.
His revolutionary handbags brought him to Italy where he perfected his leather skills then to London, teaching at London College of Fashion first then launching his first collection of structured leather bags featuring clean elegant lines.
