Arxi Collection of Bags by Konstantin Kofta
We have a minor bag fetish here at Do and we are especially turned on by bags with a sculptural quality. So imagine our excitement when we discovered Konstantin Kofta, a Ukrainian fashion designer who takes inspiration from unlikely sources to create truly original designs.
His Arxi collection for Spring Summer 2016 features backpacks and other accessories in the shape of Baroque architectural details, the curves and shapes of which look surprisingly harmonious against the human body. The result is a collection exudes elegance and style with just a touch of tongue-in-cheek humour. However, please remember not to wear it with a toga dress - the clash of architectural styles would surely be unforgivable.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
