New Zealand design duo Deadly Ponies are genius! Their beautiful fully leather bags combine high fashion and function with a bit of whimsy.
Started by Liam Bowden and Katie Smith at University when they realized the common love of tactile design and sculptural arts and crafts they each had. Both Bowden and Smith have worked as graphic designers for corporate companies for many years but have always spent their weekends creating one off pieces for friends and family.
Their collections are grounded in the quality of materials and are expanded by creating precious items that define their label. So far, they have three collections of bags and accessories under their belts and have been featured in Vogue, Wallpaper, and Fashion Quarterly.
