One of the things we love at StyleZeitgeist is bringing interesting people from fashion and other cultural realms together, especially when these people are musicians. Bryan Black, known popularly as Black Asteroid has played at some of our events, and his heavy hitting industrial techno has kept us dancing more than once well into the night. He is friends with Rick Owens, who has used his music for his runway shows, and with the band COLD CAVE, whose singer Wesley Eisold lent his haunting voice for the single Black Moon.
When Bryan was in the process of putting out a new 12-inch record we approached the artisanal Italian leather goods maker GUIDI and asked them to produce a limited edition of leather sleeves for it. GUIDI happily agreed.
We could not be happier with the results. The thick but soft vegetable-tanned leather has been handpicked by GUIDI’s artisans. All the leather pieces show slight variations in texture, which makes each sleeve unique. And of course, the leather is black as the night, which suited Black Asteroid and us just fine. Each sleeve is stamped on one side with the logos of Black Asteroid and StyleZeitgeist, with the GUIDI logo on the back. All in all, we could not have thought of a better package that would reflect the music of Black Asteroid.
