A Manifesto 

We believe that what Rachel Zoe said is true, we believe that fashion is a way of telling the world who we are without having to speak. We believe great style will last forever, that you can conquer the day in a great outfit and that you should always be yourself. We believe in enjoying a moment, in reading your daily horoscope, in dressing well, in quality, in taking selfies, in carrying crystals in your pockets, that black is a color.

We believe in coffee first, in beauty sleep and living a luxurious life. We believe in quality over quantity, style over trends, being yourself over being part of the crowd. We believe that the right shoes make all the difference, we believe in exploring, in dancing in public, to eating right and magic of meditation. We believe you are your best investment. We believe that cheetah print is a neutral, to wear red for confidence and in burning sage.

We believe in sparkle, in fireworks and in getting outside. We believe that music can cause us to time travel, we believe that ice cream does count as a meal. We believe in supporting yourself, in radical self love, in being in love, in enjoying moments alone, in the therapy of shopping. We believe that you can make a statement and not be loud.  We believe in wearing lingerie for yourself, in driving fast, in giving back and cuddling with animals. 

Seize the day, trust your instincts, ignore the haters, drink green juice, do your squats and wear red lipstick. We believe in the magic of fashion, in creating your own identity, in burning candles and in the pursuit of happiness.

Philosophy

Quality over quantity. We design key handbags that are essential for the modern woman. Each design is crafted for that purpose with the finest materials and premium craftsmanship. We are striving to put a elegance back in our lives with designs that are crafted to become iconic pieces.

It's Just You & Us

Our designs are sold exclusively through our website, abandoning the traditional model for retailing goods. This means no boutiques or department stores and also no crazy makeups to you. By eliminating these inflations we can offer a better quality product at a fraction of the cost. Traditional luxury handbags are marked up twelve to twenty times by the time it reaches you and we're not about that. No wholesale, no nutty markups, just quality and great style.

Our Factory

I grew up with the nostalgia of America, it made me fall in love with the more classic times. When it came to selecting a factory to have my goods produced I knew in my heart I wanted to have my designs read Made in America, there's just something magical about hearing that. Luckily for me I found a great team just outside of downtown Los Angeles that is just a quick jaunt down the ten. Comprised of maybe ten workers they really put they're all into creating a great product.

How it Began

Fashion has always been my dream, my drive, my motivation. When I realized I could actually design clothes for a living it was like a light bulb went on. After highschool I enrolled in FIT and then continued my education through FIDM. I've always been in awe of the pin-up culture which then sparked my love for all things 1950's and Mid Century.

Each design is reflective of great style, not a trend that is just going to fad away.  I draw inspiration from everything; classic american muscle cars that my parents drove, lovingly rebuilt and shared with my sister and I, movies, artwork and sometimes just a certain feeling you come across. Many of my fondest memories are linked to the great hot rod movie classics, car shows and 1950's music.

Besides designing the original luxury handbags I am editing my novel, trying to practice yoga, lighting lots of candles and looking for magic everywhere.

I believe in finding happiness, looking good and adding some sparkle to our lives.
