ROSITA / BONITA
Each piece of Rosita Bonita’s printed leather jewellery is lovingly handcrafted in her East London studio. Original illustrations are screen-printed or foil-embossed onto fine tactile leathers & carefully assembled into unique & collectable treasures. Coming from an Illustration background, and with experience spanning across the diverse worlds of model making, set installation, & costume design, she has developed a unique visual language along with a tactile & experimental approach to materials. The logical conclusion to these artistic wanderings was to combine disciplines, creating illustrative wearable pieces. Inspired by a glamorous fantasy of past times & faraway lands, from stage sets & costumes from Hollywood’s golden era, carnivals & magic shows, the vintage graphics of posters & packages & the icons of myth & legend, Rosita Bonita aims to design striking but wearable pieces to bring a touch of the frivolous fun of dressing up into everyday life.
