Alpha Cruxis by Rebecca Martin
Tasmanian-born designer Rebecca Martin started the fashion label Alpha Cruxis earlier this summer from her studio in Neuköln, Berlin. Its launch collection consists of five geometrically shaped handbags that Martin meticulously handcrafts from rigid 3mm-thick Italian leather, using methods she likens more to carpentry than fashion design — sanding, carving, etc. Shot by Martin’s friend Monika Holtzer, the lookbook for the collection pairs the dark, angular bags with colorful everyday objects like balloons, fennel, screwdrivers, and onion bags.
