Exemplifying Practices
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A Softly structured body achieved through a tight close small stitch and a double line in select spots forcing the softness into structure. An intentional juxtaposition and tension in material and make that produces the quality we expect you to experience with our pieces.

What inspires you ?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the streets, in the gym, from the floor to the sky and beyond. The common theme is color, strength character and age. Inspirational attributes are at the heart and soul of A-ESQUE, more than literal form and material objects. Amanda

Sitting and Free Falling at Once
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Living up to its name through a softly folded construction method in our making, the Lunch Bag can fall and sit at once. We love this mood as it gives the bag a personality that sees it both fade and speak when worn.

The Belt Bag has been defining of our design direction for 2020. The evolutionary approach we have taken is one of adaptation and alteration.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is a blend of function and form that has suited this time. It caters to the essentials we carry, it allows mobility, a casual feel that is both elevated suitable and practical. My ambition with our collection has been to make pieces you can enjoy from suits to sweats, to be the dressed up element that speaks to less is more with quality over quantity and subtle over screaming.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ultimately our tastes will emerge in contrast to what they are today. I want our pieces to be forward moving with you.
