Multitalented fur partner Viktor Konstantinopolski launched the new fur brand ASTEL by Konstantinopolski. Saga Furs was the main partner of the stylish event organized in Moscow, as well as the trusted partner, helping Konstantinopolski to realize their design vision with the help of new fur techniques developed at Saga Design Centre.
After decades of various experience in fur business and working together with Saga Furs, Viktor Konstantinopolski launches the new, family owner fur brand, ASTEL by Konstantinopolski. The new brand is a next step for his already successful business Accessory Fur, focusing mainly on fur accessories.
Konstantinopolski is also the master mind who has developed special metallizing techniques for skins. As a result, the skin gets silky softness with an amazing metallic layer in for example silver, bronze or gold tone. In fact, he is so good that the biggest names in fashion business trust only him when looking for a metallic effect in fur.
