Scar-id defines itself through its ambiguity. Black, minimal, genderless, neutral, leather. Building blocks of concepts, where words can be added, removed, reordered, and redefined.

Created in 2011 by Sílvia Pinto Costa and Andre Ramos, scar-id first appeared as a brand through  a line of leather accessories. The studio, which is also an architectural office and photography studio, is located in Porto’s Art neighborhood, curating limited and exclusive pieces designed in Portugal.

Costa and Ramos decided to design once again, recognizing the need of a conceptual separation, and so created the sub-brand ATER by scar-id in the process. The original scar-id brand is a reference to selling and promoting Portuguese design. Unable to withstand the test of time, ater was the Latin word for dull black, ultimately vanishing from the language.

No gender, no time. ATER by scar-id has now expanded its accessory line to include handbags. Each one is produced manually in a small factory in the suburbs of Porto. Resurrecting ambiguity, anonymity, and timelessness, ATER by scar-id is the perfect item to stay with you through the cold winter ahead.

The Nazareth Collection, founded in 2013 by Marcia Nazareth, is a playful combination of photography and fashion. The Portuguese brand explores the depths of creativity by creating photographic prints on high-quality domestic fabric. Though limited to tunics and t-shirts, the process is 100% manual, every step of the way. Nazareth utilizes her background in communication design and media to fuse her passions and test the waters. In Nazareth Collection’s Black Collection, the brand goes “back to black” in preparation for winter. Winter has always been a bit dark, the city-goers of the world switching their palette for something easy during the cold months. The Black Collection mixes natural and abstract aesthetics in black and white and are 100% viscose.
