The fidget spinner is undeniably this summer’s it item for children of all ages. The item is known for being made of plastic and offered in an array of bright colors. Plastic is fine for most, but for those those who’ve imagined a more aesthetically pleasing version of the toy, they can find relief through accessory designer Zana Bayne, who has created one constructed from leather and studs.
At first a one-off item created for staff, Bayne discovered the item might have wider appeal when she posted an image on social media. “Our atelier team loves playing with spinners, and so at first it was a thought that we should create leather spinners for them. The spinners are already an aesthetic toy with an attractive shape, so it just made sense to make it happen,” said Bayne and her partner, Todd Pendu in an interview with Vogue. “We like to think everything looks better in leather.”
And indeed, as pictures attest, Bayne’s version can do double time as a spinner and when at rest, an attractive table top accessory.
Priced at $75, the Zana Bayne spinner is available in black or vegetable tan leather and is detailed with a total of 34 hand-set studs. Visit zanabayne.com for more info.
