Olive & Gold Stripe Belt by One Magnificent Beast
Sometimes you are just struck by an object's beauty and you can't shake it. Maybe it is a painting or a song or even a person (!) Well, that is how I felt when I came across the belts made by One Magnificent Beast.
Based just outside of Boston, One Magnificent Beast is the creative project of Charles Heightchew & Gunner Kleinschmidt, combining their love of architecture, design, and color.
Charles and Gunner started making belts for themselves when they simply couldn't find any styles they liked. They wanted something with more 'personality', so they took matters literally into their own hands. (All pieces are made by hand in their studio).
They fused their love of vintage textiles & color schemes with their technical training to create something unique & beautiful.
I could feel the soul behind the art they created. It was like Blade+Blue had a long lost brother out in Massachusetts.
I am honored to share their artistry with you.
OLIVE & GOLD STRIPE BELT: Handmade by One Magnificent Beast exclusively for Blade+Blue, this belt is made from Japanese herringbone twill & vintage French military wool.
The belt is ingenuously constructed so that when it is looped through the cast brass rings, the chocolate brown herringbone from the reverse side contrasts against the olive/gold stripe which forms the face.
What I love most about this belt is that while the contrast in the colors is so sharp, it is still neutral and easy to pair with other items in your wardrobe.
It can be sweet & preppy or tough & edgy - I am going to leave that up to you and your own personal style.
