CHIYOME is one of our favorite handbag designers. We are attracted to its use of natural materials and its smart structure of connection. The founder and designer, Anna Lynett Moss, founded the brand in 2012, with the namesake of her Japanese great-grandmother. With the Japanese roots, Anna infuses the natural, minimal aesthetics in her design.
Building Block is a multi-medium design studio based in Los Angeles, established in 2011. The intent of each product is to clear away conventional standards of luxury by magnifying what is essential and editing out excess. Through the exploration of utilitarian materials + forms, Building Block suggests a minimalist alternative to accessories, finding continual inspiration in returning to square one.
