About Motif 56

The inspiration behind Motif 56, founded by Galila Riss and Badr Chbarbi in 2003, extends far past its Brooklyn showroom. Borrowing from the signature delicate craftsmanship found in leather goods in Morocco, the label has become famous for its rich textures and intricate details. It's no wonder the brand's innovative belts have been featured in the likes of <i>InStyle</i>, <i>WWD</i>, and <i>Harper's Bazaar</i>—even around the waist of Blake Lively on the set of <i>Gossip Girl</i>.

The Statement Belt

When it comes to accessories that have the power to transform an outfit, belts are at the very top of the list—and this Moroccan-inspired label is at the top of <i>our</i> list. Whether micro-thin or super-wide, these waist-cinchers go a long way in creating feminine curves and giving even the simplest pieces a one-of-a-kind touch. Take a cue from our stylists, who recommend topping off high-waisted trousers with skinny styles; and turn to wide, soft leather options for pairing with loose tops and cardigans.
