Launching for summer of 2011 designer Lindsay Danto’s self-titled collection of leather handbags consists of elegant and versatile designs with subtle sculptural detailing. Taking root in the concept of modern luxury her design philosophy is influenced by her travels around the world. Her appreciation for fine design grew at an early age, later serving as inspiration for the collection. Upon graduating from Boston University in 2003, Lindsay proceeded to work for two of the top upscale handbag and accessory boutiques on the east coast. In addition to learning about leather, quality of materials and craftsmanship, she learned what exactly it is that women want in a handbag. It was during this time that Lindsay’s love of bags fully blossomed. She saw a very clear need in the marketplace for on-trend yet timeless and sophisticated designs that will look just as fresh when pulled from the closet ten years from now as they do in the current season. With this concept in mind, along with her passion, creativity, and experience in the industry, Lindsay set out to create an entirely unique collection of handbags. Using 24 karat gold plated hardware and the most luxurious leathers and skins, the collection is manufactured with pride in New York City.
Lin Danto Handbags are made with natural leathers. Variations in color and texture are characteristic of the leather and only add to the individuality of each bag. We recommend consulting a professional leather cleaner for care and cleaning of your handbag, as store bought products such as sprays and conditioning lotions have a tendency to discolor leather.
