Odo Fioravanti designed this line of pine cone clutches titled 'Armure.' Each handbag resembles a cluster of flattened pine cones. The tiny plate-like patterns provide each clutch with a 3D exterior.

The uniquely patterned pine cone clutches were crafted to transform organic objects into geometric and natural shapes. The abstract bags were designed specifically for Maison 203. Each bag is available in numerous colors such as black, pink and blue.

Each plate looks as though it is floating atop the bag, which resembles a lily pad floating elegantly on the surface of water. This combination of fashion and nature creates a high-end accessory. While the handbags do not replicate the image of a pine cone, the ultimate goal is to produce something new by drawing inspiration from ordinary objects.
