INTRODUCING // OLIVE LEATHER

 

EARLY, Twenty One Bag, Eco Olive Leather, made in germany, sustainable design, conscious design, eco fashion, wine red, bag

With the certified and recently patented olive-tanning from Wet-Green®, Early now presents a new line of the ECO EDITION, which sets new standardS in terms of ENVIRONMENTAL sustainability. Compared to conventional tanning methods, it cuts down on auxiliary substances such as acids or salts and only uses nature’s pure, renewable products.

The tanning agent is prepared in a similar way to a natural tea extract by only using a by-product of the olive cultivation – the olive leaves. Producing an extract from waste olive leaves, prevents them from being burned and therefore helps to protect the climate. An additional advantage is that this process consumes less water. The result is a biodegradable premium leather with a very pleasant touch and smell.

OUR ITEMS IN BLACK and WINE RED ARE MANUFACTURED WITH olive LEATHER.

STUDIO OPENING // WELCOME TO STUDIO 4

Dear friends,

we’d like to invite you to our Studio Opening on Saturday May 14th at Niddastrasse 59, in Frankfurt.

As our new sunny home has a lot of space we decided to share it with Marc Krause, a portrait and fashion photogapher who creates most of EARLY’s visual content and Leonard Kahlcke who designs fine bespoke and made to order shoes. We are very happy about the creative atmosphere happening in the studio.

Celebrate with us from 5pm to 10pm with music, drinks and special offers on all EARLY products.

Our partner Marc Krause is starting a new series of analog black and white pictures representing the world of EARLY called STUDIO VISIT. It would be our pleasure having you as a part of it: If you own an EARLY product already, please bring it along. We would be excited to take your picture and capture your personal style of wearing it.

We are looking forward to seeing you next Saturday!

Love,

EARLY

BERLIN FASHION WEEK RECAP

I like Berlin in summer and because I don't live there it always surprises me with its multitude of sides and places.. It was a wonderful week with just the right amount of everything I love: work, art, fashion, friends, nature, dogs, perfect coffee, yummie food, productive meetings and sunshine...

We didn't attend any trade show, because I don't like the stressful setting, bad air and often bad music . I prefer to meet people in an easier atmosphere with coffee and a little time :) But I strolled around at Seek and Premium for one afternoon, just to pick up the vibe.. 

Apart from meetings and work there was still enough time to enjoy the culinary sides of Berlin and even the beautiful  nature out of town...  

 

Coffee at The Store x soho house Berlin // my favorite place for lunch in Berlin: TTCCH // adorable puppy at a tattoo studio 

 

Presentation Marina Hoermanseder // Christiane Arp at Vogue Salon

A LITTLE SWIM IN LIEBNITZSEE AND A WONDERFUL SALAD WITH FRESHLY PICKED MUSHROOMS FROM THE FOREST AT WALDKATER RESTAURANT

But the highlight of this trip was our visit at Sprüth Magers Gallery with Cyprien Gaillards fantastic 3D MOTION PICTURE nightlife. you have to see it if you are in Berlin it runs until July 16th.
