Summer Styling – Behind The Scenes with Aimee

When designing a collection, one of my favorite parts is developing my colors and prints.  Creating my custom exotics has become an integral element of my design process.


This summer, it was all about the 70’s! One of my favorite decades to draw inspiration from came back in a big way and you will feel the free-spirited vibe throughout the collection, colors and design details.


One of my favorites is the Genny crossbody.  I included hand woven chain and weave detailing and paired it with a thick crossbody strap that was inspired by guitar straps of musicians from that era.




Meet the Vertigo hobo, this season’s must-have. Featuring hand whipstitch detailing on the strap and a uniquely constructed double entry for the main two compartments. The style is lightweight with a casual laid back feel to the vintage leather and styling. When designing, I always think about what I need and where I would want to put everything I carry. Functionality and practicality is at its best in the Vertigo hobo.




Looking for the perfect everyday shopper? The Romanza is made in my soft vintage leather, which gives your bag the perfect worn-in feel! Featuring a hand carved magnetic lock at the front and woven inlay chain at her sides, Romanza is the perfect mix of cool meets casual.




If you’re looking for something that converts and can be worn multiple ways, the Lafayette convertible hobo is for you. Featuring an adjustable strap that allows her to go from shoulder bag to crossbody with our custom engraved hardware clasps. The Lafayette also features a new hardware piece inspired by industrial belts and harnesses to create the unique metal closure highlighted at the front. Paired with our newest exotics in supple leathers, she’s slouchy and a stand out from the crowd kind of piece!




I hope you enjoyed the Summer Collection! You can take a look at the full collection here.
