The design of the Vertu novelty was created by the British Karina Sol, whose corporate style is the application of floral motifs to the surface of the skin. The Aster Leaf is the company's first smartphone to use genuine aniline leather with an embossed raspberry leaf motif.
It's worth a lot to create such a smartphone. First, the designer selects plants that will become the basis for the future drawing. Then the selected leaves with several skin cuts are placed under a press for eight hours. After the leaves are removed, an embossed pattern remains on the skin with subtle interweaving of sinuous lines. Each leaf is used only once, so there can be no two identical patterns on the skin of Aster Leaf. The floral ornament continues on the metal parts of the smartphone, where it is engraved. The set comes with a cover designed by Karina Sol.
Aster Leaf is a limited edition, with only 100 smartphones going on sale. In Russia, the "natural Vertu " can be purchased from May 31. The cost of a smartphone in the company's boutiques is 668 thousand rubles.>
