For Spring Summer 2018, Valextra presents Toothpaste, a collection created in collaboration with Bethan Laura Wood, characterized by abundance of colour, a rigorous approach to shapes and obsession for perfection. Bethan’s work is the ideal ingredient to complement Valextra’s bags, and offer a new point of view on iconic Iside top-handle and of Passepartout bag, the latest addition to the Valextra offering.
For the Toothpaste collection, she invented a modular system applied to handles, clasps and detailing on the Iside and Passepartout bags. Bethan approaches them as a playground for her modular language, offering multidimensionality to the bags. Although eclectic in their aesthetics, with a nod to industrial forms and artistic movements, the sculptural details created by the designer are also pure and graphic, a perfect collusion between the designer’s visual universe and Valextra’s sophisticated rigor.
