Be&D relaunches Garbo bag for fifth anniversary

January 30, 2009


The creative force behind the indie accessories brand Be&D are back with a revamped collection for their five year anniversary. Not one to reinvent the wheel, Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain decided to relaunch their iconic Garbo bag collection with a few tweaks and new designs to enhance the collection.

The soft lambskin Garbo satchel is now adorned with studs and come in sumptuous colors just in time for spring’s colorful blooms. Word on the street is that celebs have already placed their orders for the new collection.

The Garbo Shoulder Porfolio is for the bad girl who wants to make looking bad look so good. The collection is a little bit naughty, a bit kinky with equestrian-inspired whip stitch detailing and spiked studs. The only angelic part about the Garbo is that it comes in cream.

My personal favorite in the Spring/Summer 09 collection is the Kan Kan tote bag. Already predicted to be on the arm of every celeb and socialite, it’s worth the splurge. The Kan Kan is in tuned with the ruffle trend that was seen on the runways during fall fashion week.
Be & D struck the perfect balance between naughty and nice with this bag. Small studs divide the ruffles but do not detract from the tote’s girly image. As the boys put it, it’s “punk modernity.”
The Kan Kan is available on the website for $1,390. If you splurge on one bag this season, it has to be a showstopper like this bag.

    Love the Kan Kan, just wish it had a longer handle so that I could put it over my shoulder. My arm gets tired when I have to hold it like a shopping bag!!

    The Kan Kan actually has a long handle – its detachable so you can wear it over your shoulder or across your chest!
