Brand: Be and D
With sunny days and sultry nights ahead, it’s time to introduce a vibrant new color palette for summer. Here, you’ll find a brilliant, warm-weather mix of silk button-downs, skinny jeans, strappy wedge sandals, and cabochon-studded baubles rendered in sweet, citrus-inspired hues: soft, ladylike peach, fiery, attention-getting orange, and playful, beachy coral, to name a few. Ladies, it's time to show your true colors.
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.
