Although born and raised in Italy, Laura has an international background. Laura has lived in London, Geneva, Paris, Milan, India and Barcelona. Inspired by the culture, the music and the art in all these cities, Laura was able to take the most of of them and reflect these experiences in her collection.
In Milan, where she worked for over 15 years with Versace, Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana prepared Laura for her future enterprise.
Where everything started…
In the early nineties, she started designing her own collection of jewelery. A mix of ‘brocantes’ vintage pieces that perfectly fit with the 1970’s revival taking place at that time. Since each piece was unique, so was born the ‘Laura B Collection Particuliere’.
While experimenting with different materials like silk, lace, chains, semi precious stones and more, Laura came across the mesh: a metallic fabric used in the 20s for evening bags. She was fascinated by its light and texture. And from then on, it has been Laura’s constant challenge to find renewal within the limits of one material, the mesh. In the beginning only for the jewellery but soon making belts and bags.
Through the collections the mesh took more relevance and little by little became the signature material of the brand. Women’s mesh bags are nowadays a very strong part of Laura B.
In 2003 the Men’s collection was born. Cufflinks, were accompanied by more jewellery and belts. Old coins, stones, sterling silver and a hint of mesh.
In the latest collections Laura has been introducing a new direction of day bags besides evening bags where leather and exotic skins win relevance over the mesh.
