奧地利設計師推介的自家品牌: 泰國水牛皮帶, 並可自訂圖案。
Florian Gypser has done it again! The Austrian trained architect living in Bangkok, is applying the personalized service that is behind the success of his award winning restaurant Nang Gin Kui to fashion design with the opening of a leather studio and the launch of an ecologically friendly minimal belt.
“Our experience at Nang Gin Kui has made us realize that highly focused personal service is the key to success. We hope this formula in combination with the unique service that we offer will be well received in our new craft/design based enterprise.’
Baelts by Florian Gypseris an attempt to transform the restaurant experience in a new fashion label based on craft and limitless personalization of customized leather products. It is all about the combination of a simplified, minimal leather belt with an innovative service to emboss (brand) any given artwork onto the leather. It is the first buckleless belt made from ecologically sourced vegtanned full grain Thai water buffalo leather. The product was born from Florian’s passion for artisanal perfection and minimal design, as well as his desire to create a meaningful personalized product for his family and friends.
The comprehensive inhouse bespoke and personalization service is provided by Florian and his team of an interior designer Daniel and Harvard graduates Li and Awais. The team works to perfect the fit and look of each belt and the artwork with the objective to keep pants up and give the consumer personalized daily wardrobes for decades.
“My passion to create a meaningful experience or object is driven by the direct participation of the person doing it for” says Florian.
Baeltsoperates out of a quirky workshop in Bangkok’s exotic Chinatown one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods.
This project is in many ways a return to craftsmanship for Florian, as the belts are made by hand, in house, individually for each customer rather than being massproduced in a nameless factory.
Baelts recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to gauge interest in the marketplace which runs until May 15, 2016.
