The ingenious brain-child of Head Designer Laura Pimentel, LaLucca Accessories combine high- quality materials with a heavy dose of fashion savvy.
Born in the Dominican Republic and trained in Europe and the US, Laura has a distinctive design aesthetic that comes from her multi-cultural background and studies in both interior and accessories design. In her work, functionality co-exists harmoniously with individualistic expression, bold colors and feminine shapes.
With an exceptional attention to detail, LaLucca's designs are hand-made from the softest leathers, with characteristic linings and well-designed interiors that adapt to our ever changing lifestyles. Accessories are an ideal medium for self-expression. I love to create unique designer handbags that convey bold statements.
With a collection of signature handbags under her belt, Laura created a new concept for LaLucca's Fall 2008 collection. Aptly named LaLucca Art Bags, the limited edition line features traditional shapes, interpreted in canvas and leather by international artist Aleksandar Kirilov. Each handbag is a unique design by Kirilov, who transforms each cut pattern into a 3-D art piece with a bold patina of colors and prints. Inspired by the close relationship between art and fashion, Laura and Aleksandar have joined forces to create wearable art pieces and will continue to collaborate on special edition Art Bags for future LaLucca collections.
