Cowhide // Python // Nile Crocodile // Acrylic
Vegas Gold // Gold Metallic
SR Sig. Nile Crocodile // Hand Painted Tips
Gold Satin // Double Belaire Bottle Holder
When longtime friends of SR at Belaire reached out to us asking for a piece to celebrate their newest signee, Steve Aoki, we jumped at the bit. The request was we coincide the design with Belaire's Gold Bottle Brut, and the design quickly manifested itself from there. We wanted to create a piece heavily utilizing tones of gold without going (too) over the top with it. We paired a lighter Vegas metallic gold cowhide leather with a gold-shimmer python belly to echo the shades of the liquid itself and it's packaging.
To further brand the piece, we laser cut windows in the python to match the font and spacing taken from the bottle's label itself. Each window was meticulously hand-stitched to the same Vegas gold cowhide which makes up the primary of the piece. We then laser cut gold & opaque acrylic Belaire and Aoki logos, utilizing our signature rivets as Steve Aoki's eyes to fasten the acrylic to the piece, giving his logo a sort of 'bugged out' look that his concert-goers are known for. Furthermore, our talented painters free-handed Aoki's 'Dim Mak' Logo on the backside for one more custom aspect.
It was a no brainer at this point that the piece needed SR's Signature Nile Crocodile straps in cream with hand-painted gold scale tips, and lastly, finished it off with a metallic gold satin lining equipped with 2 adjustable Belaire bottle sleeves.
