Be & D started in 2004 at a kitchen table in Brooklyn. That is where the two designers, Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain, created their first design, the Garbo. Modeled after a vintage bag they spotted in Beirut, Lebanon, it garnered much international attention. The rest is history.
The brand has since grown quickly and includes evening bags, clutches, everyday bags, and footwear. They only use premium leathers, exotic skins, and custom hardware. Celeb fans include Liv Tyler, Jessica Biel, Charlize Theron, and Penelope Cruz. Prices range from $800 to $1,500.
