Be Inthavong and Steve Dumain founded and launched Be & D in 2004. Today Steve Dumain is the creative director and all of the handbags are designed and produced in New York’s Garment District. Be & D’s first design, the “Garbo”, became such a hit that it still is one of the most popular bags the company produces. The “Garbo” collection consists of belts, mini bags, satchels, totes, and wallets.
Almost everything the company designs features a type of stud on it. The studs range from tiny to large and gives the designer brand an edgy but stylish look.
Be & D also debuted their first shoe collection in 2007, and they still continue to make shoes today. The shoes, which also feature studs on most of them, are a mixture of boots, flats and heels.
Celebrities that have been seen carrying Be & D accessories are Blake Lively, Kary Perry, Kate Moss, Eva Longoria, and Liv Tyler.
