Today was the day the Ronti Capsule went live and nothing went to plan. Ever had one of those days?
Fortunately, despite the kinks it all looks beautiful, so well worth the wait!
Talk about dreams coming true... it started with a daydream, a pencil and a sketchbook this time last year and has ended up this year being translated into the Ronti Capsule Collection.
The collection consists of (images below): one handbag design in two different sizes, one evening bag design, and two womenswear footwear designs.
The collection has been lovingly handmade in London by master craftsmen at Anthony Vrahimis Leatherworks and Ash Shoes. They undertook the product development, prototyping, pattern making, mock ups and sampling; a lengthy, but necessary process to arrive at the impeccable quality which we proudly offer up to you for order.
In addition, we had the opportunity to donate the first ever off the production line, Ronti Handbag (the only two petal bag) to the Bristol Royal British Legion who will either offer it for auction or a raffle prize at the Bristol Poppy Ball - Bristol Wears Poppies on the 18th of November.
We took a day trip up to Bristol to deliver 'The Ronti' to the Royal British Legion office in the city centre and were received by the most appreciative staff and volunteers led by Sue Potepa.
We were committed to unveiling the Ronti with the utmost sensitivity and respect for the iconic symbol which inspired the collection, hence our choosing today to make this timeless collection available from our made-to-order shop.
Finally, at the beginning of last week, we were featured by renowned Fashion Blogger Melissa Wheeler on her blog http://www.melissawheeler.co.uk/post-title2. An edited version is featured the Huffington post http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/melissa-wheeler/the-power-of-red-why-the-_b_18478562.html.
Thanks for reading the happenings at our end.
