As much as the Los Angeles glam attracts us that much it’s tossing with it’s overly commercial and materialist morality – but there are a few exceptions…and such great ones. The sister design duo – Maryam and Marjan Malakpour who are artists in multiple mediums – behind the accessories label NewbarK, enchants its customers with pieces that are handcrafted in Los Angeles out of the best leathers, canvas, felt, and suede, thus reflect edgy sophistication. Our favourite Spring/Summer 2013 collection includes simple designs: flat shoes, handbags and jewellery while providing a stylish alternative for the contemporary woman on the go. The monochrome texture-clash and oversize designs perfectly demonstrate our deepest desires when it comes to accessories – of course all impeccably crafted from prime materials. Luckily, NewbarK continues to constantly expand, but their design aesthetic always remains intact: clean, sophisticated, timeless – exactly as we like it.
