  • Spring Is In The Air!

    It has been a busy and exciting few weeks on the west coast; the weather is warming up and spring is in the air!

    Since our launch of the 'Bag To The Future' campaign in the April edition of BRITISH VOGUE, we've been honored to have offers from GQ, Glamour, TATLER and House of Coco magazines for additional campaigns! We'll keep you posted on upcoming features like the May edition of BRITISH VOGUE and an interview with House of Coco too ... stay tuned for updates!

    We had a fantastic time in Santa Ynez! Participating in the 29th Annual Spring Art Festival in Newbury Park, CA and the Buellton, CA Wine & Chili Festival alongside our dear friend and owner of Botanical Notes. She's the creator, offering wine inspired body products & soy candles all infused with the finest essential oils - the Black Raspberry and Vanilla scent is divine and absolutely my favorite! Find her on Instagram at botanical_notes. It was so fun to meet you all and get some great ideas for new styles you're looking for :)

    Stay in touch, we love to hear from you!

    Smile, Hug, Love,
    Lara ;)

  • Beyond Excited!!

    It is such an exciting time! We've been invited to work with British VOGUE, marking their 100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY, in their Bag To The Future article, April 2016 Edition! Look for it on stands and in stores March 10, 2016. In addition to that, we've published our refreshed Lara B. Designs website and started a new blog for the first time! Just can't believe it - pinch me! ;) We'll post photos of the article soon!

    We've been working diligently to produce new styles, create stock and promote the Lara B. Designs brand. Based in Massachusetts, winters can be tough, so, we headed west to attend a few shows and broaden our customer base in the Los Angeles area. We'll be Tweeting(@larabdesigns) and sending out some Instagram(larabdesigns) and Facebook(LaraB.Designs) shots. Follow us! Looking forward to a busy Spring season in the west!

    A little background on the brand:
    Lara B. Designs are primarily limited edition as we buy most leather in small quantities to allow for a variety of choices. This means some leather may not be available for reorder - so, if you love it - don’t hesitate! What you see is in stock and ready to ship. All of my pieces are handcrafted using only high-quality, luxurious leathers and fabrics, detailed craftsmanship and effortless clean design. Each piece is made by me from cutting to completion! :)

    Pick up British VOGUE April Edition and let us know what you think!

    Smile, Hug, Love,
    Lara ;)

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
