Leather for Dinner: Nashville Fashion Week 2015 included the beautiful “Accessories as Art” installation at The Cordelle, where we were honored to be featured alongside some of our favorite designers. Stunning style and an excuse to put your boots up on the table? Brilliant. Event photos courtesy of Abigail Bobo Photography.

Jemma: the spacious, carry-it-everywhere tote in a deep green-black waxed leather that wears beautifully over time, aging to reveal a lighter undercoat. Features include interior pockets, top hook closure, and antiqued silver hardware.

In October, Brothers & Craft teamed up with GQ for the magazine’s How-To series spotlighting Nashville. Clay visited us at the Peter Nappi Studio to talk about where we’re from, where we’re going, and what “ti voglio bene” is all about.

Peter Nappi Premiere Leather Jacket Collection

Limited Edition Jacket Collection

LIMITED EDITION: IL PRIMO COLLEZIONE GIACCA

Inspired by 1950’s Italian work and racing jackets…limited to just twelve pieces per style…that’s all we have to say about it.

JUST KIDDING. We’ve spent a year tinkering with our first-ever leather jacket collection, so we’d like to get speechy for a moment, if we may. What we love about creating any new design is building the perfect relationship between style and substance, lines and leather. Each jacket in the collection has been specially treated to simultaneously bring out the specific characteristics of the hide and create a lived-in feel.

Take the Noemi Collarless Bomber: pared down to a bomber’s sleekest components, its lines are minimalist, but they’re paired with the incredibly soft, luxurious texture of tumbled lambskin. Alina Asymmetrical Moto’s front zip leads to a collar with just the right balance of softness and structure, to be worn equally well up or down. The Mauro Classic Racer features an ultra lean silhouette, but gusseted shoulders make it a fully functional riding jacket, and subtle hand-burnishing makes each one unique. The Nico Utility Jacket, with its six-pocket maximum stowaway capacity, is ribbed with leather rather than fabric at the waist so it won’t pill or fray, and though the pockets are roomy, the fit is carefully tailored to avoid bulk.

Okay, Jackets, party of twelve, your table is ready.

Ti voglio bene.
