Kale Miles - Luxury fashion accessories for men
Sculpture. Design. Heritage.
Add our quest for uncompromising
materials and you have Kale Miles.
As its founder expounds, after an
exhaustive search across Europe
and New York, ďI couldnít find what I wanted
in a belt, so Iím designing my own.Ē Not pure
narcissism; metal-workers, leather craftsmen,
and artisans are found on all branches of the
family tree. So the devotion to fine workmanship
is as old-world as Italy. But thereís also a 21st century aspect
at work. Kale Miles is all about what people in the modern
universe of taste and style require. Hand-finished labors of
love. Ultra-fine works of metal and leather, meticulously
crafted. The results are belts you will eagerly want to slip on.
And organic wrist accessories that are sensual, arresting.
Kale Miles. Wear a work of art.
What do we mean when we say:
Wear a work of art? Itís actually
a three-part platform and philosophy.
Part one constitutes the design. And each design
has its own inspiration, be it an object, a place, or a
place in time. Each design is sketched, reworked,
and rethought to ascertain its place in the collection.
We not only concentrate on style, of course, but
accessible style. Part two is the materials we use
to carry out the design. In a word, the best. The
leathers come from the worldís oldest and finest tanneries,
slow-tanned and full-grain for a lifetime of wear. And, as
they wear, they acquire an exquisite patina. The metals are sterling silver, sculptorís bronze, and platinum. Rare and beautiful, dense and rich. Not brass, or remotely brassy, but classic and refined. Part three? The hand-finishing. Belt straps are hand-stitched for a stronger hold. Metals are subtly antiqued for an immediately lived-in and loved character. The dark bronze is hand-rubbed, hand-tooled, for a finish thatís not only unique,
itís exceptional. All of this attention to detail is the
culmination of years of developing, designing, selecting.
A slow process. A process inspired by a devotion to creating
something extraordinaray. Something that will endure.
Fine art isnít created by machines or mass production.
Originality is not rushed. This is the luxury of Kale Miles.
