Like it or not, studded bags are a huge hit still for fall. So many of us continue to love the studded trend while others are ready for it to be over. While this may be a newer endeavor for some designers, the duo behind Be&D has been adding studs to their handbags for years.

We continue to have the pleasure of meeting some of our favorite designers, designers that I have always admired and looked up to. Meeting Be and Steve of Be&D was a total treat. The duo are inherently different yet compliment each other wonderfully. And because just one interview was not enough, we are able to share another fun read with you!
When we first entered the crowded showroom back in November, we did not quite know what to expect. Our previous experiences of meeting new fashion designers had overall been pleasant ones, we did not think that meeting Steve Dumain and Be Inthavong of Be & D would be any different. Still, knowing the smashing success the two have had since 2004, one could not help but be intimidated just a bit.
Besides lots of bags on sale, this Be & D’s seasonal sample sale offers shoes to the public for the first time! Sizes are 36-40.

As we all await Sex and the City the movie to come out, I can’t help but wonder what each and every piece of wardrobe will be. Carrie, SJP, is a free spirit, who pulls off outfits that are sometimes ghastly and other times the next “it” trend. But the one thing Carrie was able to do was wear each and every outfit with confidence.
This quilted patent leather handbag shows that Be & D can design an array of bags that look hugely different. Be&D has been known for their Crawford Hobo, which was widely accepted and loved in leather and seen as weary in black and white canvas. But a structured sister has come on board. The Be&D Audrey Handbag is a contender for an evening handbag, whether it be for dress up or a night on the town.
Blue happens to be one of my favorite colors. Even in pre-school, I remember painting only blue pictures- although the pictures showed no versatility they did show off my favorite color. I think that every girl should own a bag in her favorite color, whatever that may be. I have been on the search for the perfect blue/teal bag. In the running is the Be&D Large Ava Nubuck Satchel in blue slate.
When you want to mix hip style with classic appeal, it turns out that many times you find that to be a hard task. Maybe it is because you are young but want to give off the vibe of being sophisticated chic, or you are reaching those older (the years that we shall not mention) and want to look young and in style.
Ever since I bought my mom the Gucci Large Horsebit Hobo for Mother’s Day, I’ve been contemplating if I should be an Indian-giver and take it back. I simply love that bag. More of an obsession I have with it really. And now Be&D, one of the hippest new brands, has designed the trendy shaped hobo style bag to add to their already growing popular handbag line.
