The namesake brand of the New York-based designer presents meticulously handcrafted leather accessories that play on the lines of the body. Subtle bondage undertones and defined silhouettes evoke a sense of refinement, accentuating the style of the individual wearer.

Artist talking

“At the end of the day, I tell people harnesses are just belts with suspenders and anyone can wear a belt. It’s just getting people comfortable with them,”

“Accessories are a really great way to be able to wear something that is a statement but be able to style it in a way that’s your own,”

“People have worn[my designs] on their faces, upside down, or backwards — you just see how far you can go.”
