In February 2017, Carina Sohl takes part of Maison d’Exceptions, an area exclusively set aside for fashion designers and luxury brands. This exclusive showcase welcomes 27 ateliers with rare know-hows, and offers an international and diverse selection of exceptional techniques.
Inspired by the everyday treasures of nature, Carina Sohl has crossed the countryside of her native Sweden since 2006, carefully gathering flowers, plants and herbs to bring her work to life. Leather, an organic material, serves as the base for her hand-stamping technique. She developed this quasi-botanic, quasi-artisan technique in her own workshop, where she conceives a composition according to her own whims or those of a client and imprints them via leather hotstamping. It is a poetic printing that evokes the cycles of nature, as the natural elements needed for the process are effectively destroyed during the stamping and leave in their wake a new form that bears their resemblance.
PLEASE NOTE : Maison d’Exceptions is exclusively for the men’s and women’s luxury market – apparel, leather goods, footwearn and jewellery. In order to guarantee optimal working conditions for the ateliers and visitors at the show, Première Vision reserves the right to limit access to the space.
