If you’ve been wondering what type of handbag Shawn Johnson, Teri Reeves, Mya and Pamela Anderson have been carrying, I’ve got the full scope! I first learned about LANY handbags when I witnessed the bronze beauty on the arm of Ashley Rickards, photographed here on the right. If you know me, you know I love large handbags that make a statement and is like no other. The bronze finish on the LANY5055S in this photo screams glamorous, thus my LANY addiction was born.
LANY is a fashion, vegan handbag brand for current trendsetters. Back in 1989, founders Robert and Jane started a small boutique Downtown, Los Angeles. The duo worked closely together and tackled every challenge together including days of research, designing, deciding on color swatches and fabric options and seeking manufacturers within the United States and beyond. In 1991, the company became a corporation under Samdae Enterprises, Inc., and three years later LANY was born. Still situated in the heart of Los Angeles, LANY has grown to become known throughout the United States for its fashion-driven handbags.
The best part is, LANY is PETA-approved vegan. Once you purchase a LANY handbag, you can proudly hold your purse with pride knowing no animals were harmed making it.
Why are they called LANY? Robert was once inspired by the beautiful village, LÁNY, in Czech Republic. The name is always a positive reminder of pure beauty found in nature. Therefore, Robert and Jane always look back to their roots to find inspiration in their designs. Some fans also refer to LANY as “Los Angeles New York” since coast to coast design trends are crucial to Robert and Jane’s upcoming collections and overall inspiration.
