THE NEW TRAKATAN COLLECTION PLAYS TO THE CLASSIC REBUS “DOT TO DOT”.
NEVERTHELESS IT TRANSFORMS AN APPARENTLY STATIC GAME INTO THE METAPHOR OF A FULL OF SWERVES AND WAYS BACK PATH. “POSSIBLY DOTS ARE GIVEN – IT SEEMS TO SAY – BUT TRACING YOUR LINE IS UP TO YOU”. SUCH A THEME IS THE BASE FOR THE CAPSULE COLLECTION, INCLUDING A SERIES OF BACKPACKS, BAGS AND UNISEX ACCESSORIES MADE OF CRUST LEATHER AND SILK-SCREEN PRINTED BY HAND IN THE TURIN JAIL. DIFFERENT IN THICKNESS DOTS AND LINES TRACE A PATH MADE OF ATTEMPTS AND SECOND THOUGHTS.
THE COLLECTION DISTINGUISH ITSELF FOR THE USE OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS CHOSEN FOR THEIR PHYSICAL AND TACTILE LIGHTNESS: FROM SMOOTH VEGETABLE TANNED CALF LEATHER TO TECHNICAL SPORT TEXTILE, UP TO THE SUPER-THIN, PAPER-LIKE LEATHER.
BEYOND THE UNDENIABLE BLACK, THE COLLECTION MOVES AROUND THREE COLOURS: BLUE CURACAO, LOBSTER RED AND ICE WHITE: THE COCKTAIL HAS ALREADY STARTED AND PAOLO CONTE’S HEMINGWAY IS ECHOING IN THE AIR.

TRAKATAN IS (GET) BACK.

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A ROOFTOP, PAUL’S BEARD, THOSE ABSURD FURS, RINGO’S RED PATENT LEATHER, LONDON POLICEMEN’S ANACHRONISTIC HELMETS …
TRAKATAN CHOOSES A CLASSIC TO TITLE ITS NEW COLLECTION. A TITLE SOMEHOW CLOSING THE NOMADIC TRILOGY STARTED WITH THE “WHERE DO WE GO NOW?” COLLECTION AND FOLLOWED BY “ROAMING AROUND”.
AFTER A PARTLY ANXIOUS(*)RAMBLE, “GET BACK” AS A RETURN.
BACK TO THE ROOTS OF ITS OWN WORK, TO THE LAB, TO CRAFTSMANSHIP EXPRESSING ITSELF THROUGH DETAILS: SILK-SCREEN ARTISANAL PRINTINGS, HAND SEAMS, RAW CUT, BALANCE AND ASYMMETRY.
A RETURN TO SOME OF THE BRAND’S MOST REPRESENTATIVE MODELS, NOW RECONSIDERED INTRODUCING NEW COLOURS AND DETAILS. QUALITY, TRADITION, CRAFTSMANSHIP.
HOWEVER, THE RETURN IS ALSO BACK TO TRAKATAN’S IDENTITY AND ITS MOST REPRESENTATIVE BAGS STYLES. THAT IS THE ICONIC BIG BAG FILOMENA, THE UNISEX HANDBAG BIAGIO - OVERSIZED TRAVEL BAG FOR EVERYDAY; THE MINIMAL NINO BRIEFCASE, THE SHOULDER BAG THAT DRESSES YOU LALLA ... NOW RECONSIDERED INTRODUCING NEW COLOURS AND FUNCTIONAL DETAILS THAT MAKE THE BAGS VERSATILE IN A DOMINO EFFECT WHERE THE HANDLES TURN INTO SHOULDER STRAPS, THE BAGS BECOME BACKPACKS, TRADITION MELTS WITH INNOVATION.
BLACK, OLIVE, BURGUNDY AND DARK DROWN ARE THE COLOURS OF THE PLACE WHERE WE ONCE BELONGED. GET BACK JO.
