Bob Basset has created a line of leather accessories for Simulated Mind, the Fall 2012/Winter 2013 collection by the Ukrainian brand L’UVE. The work was commissioned by designer Valeria Kovalska.

“I asked Bob Basset for some advice on how to age leather and make it matt,” Valeria told Bestin.ua. “Some of the methods were my own ideas. I’d buy windshield washer fluid and then rub it in… I love leather, love the way it looks… The masks for this collection were made by the legendary Bob Basset. I first heard of him from Tanya Kremen when he did those bags for PURE. So I plucked up some courage and started working with him. He’s got a very skeptical view of designers, but when he saw what we were doing he said yes.”

Bob Basset created several accessories, such as helmets and gauntlets, which follow the collection’s overall concept: a merging of images of a Medieval knight and a World War I soldier.
