Lauren’s penchant for mixing eclectic colors has found many outlets, from oil painting to decorating to her very own hair color. When she picked up the skill of sewing on a random trip home, it was an irresistible channel for her quirky color combining. Though she’s not reinventing the wheel when it comes to her functional, durable bag and wallet designs, it’s that innate understanding of the color spectrum that keeps the compliments rolling in. She’s a wee obsessive with that whole functionality thing, too, making and remaking a prototype until it is absolutely flawless. Best watch out, neutrals.
