We can't get enough of Johnny Farah. The Lebanese American designer creates exquisite leather pieces that flatter and up the wow factor of every outfit. Maria sold his collection in her previous store and is thrilled to be showing his work again with M2057 fashions.
"Johnny has such an excellent sense of the materials he uses and how to manipulate them in surprising and wonderful ways, like creating gashes in the leather for loops. It makes each piece seem like a work of art—defined but raw—and they are so beautiful on women's bodies," she says.
Johnny Farah's belts feature premium vegetable-tanned leather, which preserves the material's natural beauty, with hand-molded high-quality brass hardware.
While each design is unique, they share an aesthetic that marries elegance with edge.
It's no surprise these belts work so well with the M2057 collection. Much like Maria, many of Johnny Farah's influences have come from architecture, particularly Scandinavian designers like Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wagner.
"What I most love about Johnny's work are the couture-like details that are done in a very industrial kind of way. The quality and workmanship is divine—they are pieces you would wear in a million ways for many years to come!" says Maria.
