Gorilla – Amanda Testa

Dreamy
The Lion Sleeps Tonight

In the tradition of Magical Realism, Amanda Testa’s painstakingly handcrafted clutches bring the jungle’s most iconographic animals to life in satin, silk and velvet. Weeks in the making, each piece is constructed from scratch and involves a lengthy process of hand cutting, assembling and embroidering textile cut-outs, satin stitching, quilting, construction and finishing.

Made from expertly quilted leather and soft velvet, The Gorilla pays respectful, flared-nostril homage to Rousseau’s jungle tableau ‘The Dream’. Made in very small, limited quantities, these it-bags are fitted with an optional leather shoulder strap, making them especially fit for queens of the concrete jungle.
