• Artwork Description
    This Pinel et Pinel x Cyril Kongo BE@RBRICK series consists of eight unique colours in each set and will be available in limited quantities.
    Each BE@RBRICK is entirely made by hand with 56 pieces of tagged leather and coated canvas, including 6 leathers painted by Cyril Kongo at Pinel et Pinel’s studio. The whole crafting production took a month to complete. Each crafting process: material selection, modelling, cutting, stitching, is sheathed adroitly by craftsmen of the Parisian workshop.
