Mike Z Ballerini grew up as the son of a farmer in the suburbs of Detroit. A city which is today mainly dominated by abandoned factories and empty production halls. As a fashion designer this was inspirational for Ballerini. And he's still inspired today, crafting high-grade bags for men.
In Detroit luxury does not have to shine. So his bags are reduced to the essentials: the craftsmanship, the materials, the man who carries them. Each one is hand-crafted. Young labels like Z Ballerini are giving new confidence to the former stronghold of automotive engineering. Even if many assembly lines are now shut down you can still feel the spirit of Detroit.
