Last week I attended a breakfast at Harrod’s Ladurée to celebrate the launch of the Ethan K debut collection, ‘Wildlife Odyssey’. The 22 piece collection is handcrafted in Tuscany and created using the finest Niloticus crocodile. Encrusted clasps in semi-precious stones are inspired by ‘Wildlife’ and feature the vital hedgehog, the sensual snake and the lucky frog. The leathers are sourced from his Ethan’s father’s tannery which also supplies some of the world’s leading brands in luxury accessories.
Ethan K may just be 24 years old and have only just graduated from London College of Fashion in July, but he has already gained a substantial background in selecting and finessing the finest precious exotic leathers in the world. First learned by his great grandfather in Singapore.
