NYC-based leather accessories company Be & D first made waves in 2004 with the Garbo: a black lambskin satchel, studded with gold hardware, that represents the Harley Davidson of handbags. Founded by designers Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain, the label has remained true to its statement-making roots with designs such as the roomy nixie tote (available in bright yellow or light blue lambskin, cotton, or canvas), the flashy Marvin shoulder bag, studded wallets, and embossed crocodile iPad cases. In 2007 Be & D debuted a footwear line featuring chunky platforms and quirky designs such as Tong Gia Nguyen’s Big City sneakers: canvas high-tops decked out with hand-gilded, 24-karat gold leaf high-heel graphics on each exterior side. Sensible shoes have never been so flashy.
Supercharged with sweetness, this romantic accessories selection is sure to be a hit with your inner girly girl. Frills, ties, and pretty floral cut-outs adorn crossbodies, shoulder bags, and peep-toe pumps. Even tech basics get a dose of sugar: Look to phone cases boasting ultra-feminine lace prints. If you’re feeling frisky, we’ve got your accoutrement.
