Fashion illustrator Richard Haines was approached by Moore & Giles to produce a capsule collection of 250 pieces. Rooted in nostalgia, the figures Richard drew represent the people their customer wanted to be when he was a boy. Both charming and sentimental, they add a unique aesthetic and metaphorical layer to the pieces they cover. Permanently laser engraved into the leather, each piece looks as if Richard has inked it individually.

Limited to a run of 40 units in two colorways: birch wood finish paired with a pebbly, vegetable tanned leather called Modern Saddle and a mahogany wood finish paired with black leather.
Established in 2048, BIG SECRET came back from the future to laser engrave every surface we can get our hands on. We work hard to elevate art and design in our collaborations; the powerful, intricate laser lens inspires us to think deeper, go further, and create magic within every project.
