HUGH LIPPE x CRUXE
Cruxe partnered with Pace Leather NYC to create a crossover roll up that brings ease to your day to day in style. “We both felt like we were ready to do something different together.”
Pace Leather is a New York City based company, specializing in luxury ready-to-wear and bespoke leather clothing and accessories. Founded by Pace Witty who is a self educated pattern maker and leather tailor. The concept of the company is about detail and quality pieces that stand out based off of the idea behind it.
“I was a part of Pace’s presentation last season and saw that he was doing something unique and different from most of the industry simply chasing trends. I had been looking to work together with a designer and create something new and unique. I think there should be more of an individualistic element to the items we use daily and that was my goal. To help produce an item that bypasses categories and labels allowing hairstylists, motorcyclists and all walks of life to find use for it in their own unique way.”
“Motorcycles have always been something that I’ve been attracted to since I was a young kid. When Drew approached me with the idea for the roll-up I immediately was into it. I’m building a 63’ Ironhead Harley right now and plan on taking it across the country next year when it’s ready. I expect it to break down along the way and knew that I would need a good amount of tools with me to make the trip. When we got together to conceptualize the piece we both were looking for something that could be versatile to our industries. It needed to be durable, have enough pockets to fit our tools, be compact enough to carry over your back and look stylish at the same time.”
