For the first time C.A.B. will present the entire collection at CAPSULE in NYC. I am so excited to share a booth with my amazing friend and fellow designer Chelsea Cardinal. Come see us at booth C25.
Black Croc-Effect is out new favorite leather treatment. Currently available in the Mini Lisa Circle Bag and the Addie Ring Bucket Tote. Snatch one up soon because this leather is AMAZING!!!
When I first moved to Eagle Rock I discovered the amazing consignment shop GIFT OF GARB. Owned by Abby McLucas and now located in Silverlake-GOG is one of my favorite places to shop. So when it came time for the next C.A.B. photo shoot I really wanted to style the incredible designer consignment pieces with new arrivals from C.A.B.
We shot everything on site at Gift of Garb with Ross Martin (photographer), Stephanie Smith (Hair and Make-up) and Savannah Bigley (model). Styling the shoot was like shopping in your dream closet.

We’re willing to bet Carly Ann Beck was the only Diane Von Furstenberg employee who got her start on Capitol Hill. After burning out on politics (which we can all understand), she traded policy- for pattern-making, graduating from FIT with a degree in fashion merchandising. That earned her gigs with DVF, Yael Afalo pre-Reformation, and Steven Alan, where she did a stint as a brand manager. There she realized how dang hard it was to find affordably priced bags, and she co-created a New York-based line called Sedgwick with childhood friend Ashley Baker to solve for that.
In 2012—a few years and a move to Los Angeles later—Carly branched off on her own and launched C.A.B., which includes structured duffels and boxy crossbodys, in hues like tomato red and turquoise-y green that rotate out monthly instead of seasonally. “I like to start with one color that I’m really feeling and then add five more colors that compliment it, telling a new story each month,” explains Carly. “I didn’t like having to produce for spring, fall, etc.—I love to make changes all the time,” says Carly. —lindsay o'rourke

Love you T! I can't thank you enough.
Photo shoot details: Flint Hills-Kansas + Featuring the GRAND canteen in Black and the Vivian Tote in Brick
The Sara canteen in rich soft suedes is a favorite bag of mine. So when I was asked to add a couple larger bags to the collection I thought what could be better than a bigger Sara Canteen.
So the GRAND canteen was made in Italian vegetable dyed leathers and a lavender suede. I have carried this bag for a weeks now and I have to say it is my newest obsession.
