Old Town Young Soul
A new season and a new photoshoot at Time Resistance. Since we constantly update, improve and renew our collection, photo shoots have become an inseparable part of our journey.
We have a lot of new leather backpacks, messenger bags, leather briefcases, leather duffel bags and so much more therefore we are really excited for you to finally see them.
This time we were really inspired by everyone’s favorite thing – vacation. My favorite type of vacation is not rock climbing in Australia or surfing in Hawaii, my ideal way to relax and rejuvenate is to go to some European town full of life and history; wander around, and sit down for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, observe the architecture and the people.
We found a perfect representation for that - a classic yet youthful gentleman and one of the most authentic capitals in Europe – Vilnius. There are so many beautiful alleys and nooks in the old town that we could be there for days. The funny part was that we actually saw a lot of people there going to their jobs, wearing similar clothes and carrying leather briefcases so that photo shoot seemed very real this time.
For this photoshoot we have decided to get back to basics and flirt with the concept of „timeless“ which is such a big part of our brand. We still wanted to make it fresh and exciting though. It was decided to go with the idea of creating images that make it difficult to determine the place or time of the scene. Making it really ambiguous: is it the past, present or future? Isn‘t that a true definition of „timeless“?
Now, it is easier said than done. After discussing various locations it was set to take place at one of local quarries. Nice pastel earthy tones of the sand let our leather briefcases, backpacks, leather travel bags, etc. trully shine.
We added some carefully selected props like a transparent cube, a chair, mirrors, custom made golden ruins to make the shots more interesting, create an illusion, and also to raise questions: Are they really just walking in a desert at the present time or is this a distant future and the office is underground, underneath the sand?
We were so excited about the launch of a new travel bag collection. Sleek, sharp, modern yet classic – these words described both, the bags and the atmosphere of the photoshoot. A mystericous man full of class and attitude is a prophet in a new land.
King of Shadows
A visual masterpiece. This is how we remember the experience from the photoshoot King of Shadows. Cold concrete, strikingly blue sky and the contrast of those two made the images dynamic and magical. A lonesome man in a distopian world manages to survive with only wisdome in his eyes and reliable leather briefcase in his hands.
Freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Freedom is all about having the right to be different. Many grandparents, parents of ours and even us fought for this precious virtue. This is something we always wanted and something we will always stive for. This is what sums up the essence of this photoshoot. Vintage but with a hint of modern – who says you can‘t have it all?
We have always believed that classy leather bags are not for only stuffy business man, cool guys can wear them as well without loosing their swag. This is what we tried to prove with the photoshoot called Opposites Atract. Some shoots were taken in an old manor and the classic design doctor bags really brought us back in time for a moment. Then we moved to a skating park near some office buildings where many youngs guys like our handsome model actually work. The bags really accustomed to the new habitat and transformed the man into an edgy millenial.
Most of our bags and accessories are unisex. We find it edgy, cool and empowering for a women to carry a briefcase even a really masculine looking one, this is how you know she is a real boss. We wanted to utilize both male and female models to show how leather portoflios, classic doctor bags, etc. can be used by both without being a caricature. The tale is as old as time: after a busy work day (of course they look so proffesional!), a couple meet for a romantic getaway (now the style is much more relaxed yet still chic).
It‘s all about the versatility of leather bags. We really went wild with this one, story-wise of course. He is a secret agent working on one of his cases, infiltrating and observing. Different locations, from corporate headquarters to a train station to an abandoned nuclear plant, perfectly disguised and ready to strike.
Sun Kissed Rye
Travel is everything! Whether it‘s business or pleasure, it‘s always exciting, especially if the destination is as sunny, warm and fuzzy as our photoshoot Sun Kissed Rye. Fresh, cheerful and full of life – this is what we had in mind introducing the new collection of leather backpacks, totes, and for the very first time – sling bags!
Nothing makes us more upset than a notion that clasic is boring. We love classic however we like to have fun too, I mean we‘re still young (at least at heart). We really wanted to show that Italian leather travel bags can be a great addition to a youngster's collection. And whats a more exciting way of travelling than sailing? Looking at the images you can almost feel the breeze. Oh if we were in our 20s again!
