paris-based belgian designer natalia brilli launched her own line of sculptural jewelry, handbags
and accessories for women and men in 2004. she loves the softness and matte aspect that leather
gives to jewellery, usually sought after for its shine.each of her creations has been covered in treated
lambskin, (a material) which became her signature. the experimentation has progressively expended

to other types of jewellery, up to the creation of a line of bags, all hand-made in france and italy
and fun accessories, like domino sets and skateboards.for S/S 09, the leather morphs into bright blue,
yellow, olive green. the finishes become more complex, in particular patent gets boiled and blistered
until a shiny speckledeffect is achieved that will always be irregular in its outcome.
