Hardworking Handbags: A visual series by Alessandro Furchino Capria

Words by Yu Mei

A visual series by Alessandro Furchino Capria

Introducing our recent collaboration with photographer Alessandro Furchino Capria, a visual series personifying the Yu Mei hardworking handbags. Yu Mei pieces are witnessed going about their daily lives at home and on the streets of London.

Through Alessandro’s lens, the city's slate-grey plays the role of urban backdrop, complimenting the bold Yu Mei colours and highlighting the colourway additions of Dahlia, Aubergine and Spice.

Alessandro’s signature natural lighting and vernacular compositions uniquely examine the collection, intimately documenting each bag’s versatility and contribution to our daily routines.

“I like the idea of imperfection and a sort of elementary photography in order to create pictures that have an unrehearsed and almost accidental air about them.” — Alessandro Furchino Capria
