The Krane Tutu reflects the stripped-down aesthetic of leather accessories in the Krane Man line, which draws from minimalist architecture. The designers sought to magnify and draw light to the mesh-like structure of tulle at the tutu’s core by emphasizing the links and threading of the fine fibres. Waxed cotton binding, waxed cord and metal rivets add texture and create unity.

Ken Chow, the Founder and Creative Director of Krane, is a graduate of the menswear program at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Chow worked with Marc Jacobs and Cloak before entering the men’s market with a reinterpretation of an old classic – the waxed cotton and leather carryall. This paved the way for the Krane Man line of outerwear and leather accessories. Krane is now available at specialty department stores and boutiques across Canada, the United States and Asia.
