Deadly Ponies: Fontana Resort 17

Posted by Fianna O'Donoghue on

Deadly Ponies latest collection explores one of humanity's oldest relationships between the hand and eye. The 2017 Resort collection explores the ancient tradition of penmanship and the art of ‘Flourish Calligraphy’. Borne of a fascination with pen flourish works, Fontana is a tribute to master craftspeople everywhere.

"Calligraphy is a fine, learned skill, which has been lost in our relentless, digital age. It is to be admired for its perfection and artistry. We’ve always taken pride in mastering the craft of ‘making’ with our collections, and it’s important we continue to celebrate other crafts and craftspeople who are experts.” - Deadly Ponies Creative Director, Liam Bowden.

Fontana expertly balances simplicity and detail. The collection’s over-arching design feature, the 'Wilde Horses', have been screen-printed onto canvas. Alongside classic black leathers, calypso blue and rose underpin the brand’s willingness to experiment with vivid hues that catapult trusted bag companions into stunning and memorable objects of design.

Resort 2017 also introduces exciting new leathers just in time for the event season. Deadly Ponies' new metallic has been interpreted across a selection of evening pieces in sleek, metallic black and the marbled metallic rose.

The latest collection from Deadly Ponies is available in store from the 8th November. Head on in to browse the collection and learn more about these new and exciting additions from Deadly Ponies.
