The Espresso Collection:
Motif No.3is back with a darker perspective on their signature Jazz Collection, called the Espresso Collection. The Espresso Collection offers the "Sling" and "Belt Bag" with a darker, richer color pallet that speak into the minimalistic aesthetic that defines Los Angeles. Continuing their ambition for art inspired bags, the Espresso Sling and Belt Bag offers a sculptural approach to Motif No.3's Contemporary Bag Collection. Fueled by their passion for American made and high design, each Motif No.3 bag is built in Downtown, Los Angeles.
This recent collection is inspired by their love for Los Angeles' cafésand nightlife. The Espresso Sling and Belt Bag, with its rich tones and subtle statements, represents LA's culture of "subtle on the outside, hidden gems on the inside." Both bags contain hidden features and details allowing the wearer to discover more about the bag as they are in use.
The Espresso Collection is designed and made of buttery espresso and ebony leather. In Los Angeles the cafés, is one of the life bloods of the city and espresso is the lifeblood of the cafés. It connects conversation, life and business within the city. With this in mind Motif No.3 designed a bag to be an everyday piece that can be worn from your morning cafés meetings to your night out. "Form, function and daily elevation are elements that we design into all our bags. " Cheryl Ross, Head of Design.
