Chevrons braided straps

My couture inspirations.

The chevron strap, which is entirely hand-made, consists of a leather base with precise openings, and overlaid strips braided to form a chevron pattern. This double layering allows leather strips of two different colors to be interwoven to create a harmonious braid. The mother of pearl dial on the women’s Tonda 1950 lends itself beautifully to this colorful interplay, producing a host of nuanced effects as it reflects the light.
