Sneak Peek: Be & D Shows A Polished Side For Fall
designer Steve Dumain may find his designs on many a celeb (Cameron Diaz, Fergie and Taylor Momsen for starters), but he’s more interested in the everyday woman. “Women these days don’t want a bag they carry just once and toss aside,” the designer emphasized. “For Fall, I was going for an item that a woman can carry everyday, every week, every month.” That credos has served him well for the upcoming season.
On a recent visit to Be & D’s studios, I checked out a Fall collection that was decidedly more polished hardware was cleaned up and the silhouettes were classic satchels and hobos with a deconstructed feel. Besides being impressed by the in-house leathersmiths (the brand is currently relocating to a bigger space to have more work room), I particularly loved that Dumain paid attention to texture. There was a gorgeous leopard-printed kidskin that boasted a delicious handfeel like silky suede, while a couple styles offered rough and tumble distressed finishes for the tough girl (or those who just like to play dress-up like one).
