Italian concerias offered a limited amount of "craccato" leather to high end New York designers for their Spring/Summer 2014 collections. The technique of craccato is to spray suede hides with patina and various other finishes with an intention of it cracking and rubbing away with time. This is a unique way of becoming one with your handbag. The material on top rubs away slowly where used and the beautiful colors from beneath come out. This process cannot be imitated. The forerunners of fashion trending have revealed that this look will be much more prolific and much more extreme in Summer of 2015. 3Seven&8 found this to be perfect as it is evocative of the materials used in Antoni Gaudi's Spanish structures. Get your ever evolving handbag a year in advance of this high-end concept's fruition.
