Once again, the Tokyo conceived and L.A. based label Building Block is blowing our minds with their new SS13 Preview, which I received this morning from their designers, Kimberly and Nancy Wu. They have added new shapes to their permanent series, the Black Collection, which debuted last season and is inspired by “Gattacan pragmatism”. Also introduced is their Seasonal SS13 line, which features a playful interpretation of their beautiful Butter bag.
Building Block is the collection of automobile designer Kimberly and her sister Nancy Wu. Their first collection consisted of handbags composed of leather, rubber and wood. With the intention of living outside luxury and trend, the designers think of the line as an exercise in minimalism and necessity, finding inspiration in returning back to the basics. Kimberly, who travels between Tokyo and LA, also has an inspirational blog showing her daily life, design aesthetic, works in progress.
