BE­SPOKE WINE CAR­RIER

Wine & Dine - - HAPPY GIFTING -

If you ap­pre­ci­ate wines and fine crafts­man­ship, you’ll be ex­cited to hear all about the ex­clu­sive col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Sin­ga­pore-based fine wine and whisky re­tailer, Wine & Whisky, and Ja­pa­nese be­spoke shoe­maker Yo­hei Fukuda. Named The Masters Se­ries, it is in­cepted by mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary agency STATE Cre­ative and fea­tures unique life­style ob­jects cre­ated by some of the world’s best crafts­men and de­sign­ers.

For this unique col­lab­o­ra­tion, Fukuda, a mas­ter shoe­maker who has been craft­ing some of the most el­e­gant and re­fined footwear for men since 2008, teamed up with Wine & Whisky to un­veil a lim­ited edi­tion se­ries of wine car­ri­ers hand­crafted from shrunken calf leather. The first re­lease com­prises only 25 pieces.

De­signed with both wine and shoe in mind, this crossover is a sub­tle join­ing of the two crafts and is an ex­quis­ite ex­am­ple of Yo­hei Fukuda’s fine crafts­man­ship.

The clean and el­e­gant form of the wine car­rier be­lies a se­ries of care­fully con­sid­ered de­tails—the ad­justable ster­ling sil­ver buckle brings to mind the same iconic buck­les of monk strap shoes, while the dog tail stitch­ing adds sub­tle em­bel­lish­ment along the sides of the bag which is then fin­ished with a per­fectly stitched leather base, an al­lu­sion to the sig­na­ture soles of Fukuda’s well-loved be­spoke shoes.

Each wine car­rier comes pack­aged in a Kiri wood box and re­tails at S$1,800. #04-10, 100 Pasir Pan­jang. Tel: 6358 2594; state­cre­ative.com.sg
