Strapped In Leather

by Sofroina Timmons
Pairing the right bag with your fashion can be tricky. I for one take it serious - like drinking fine wine. This fall, fashion has stepped it up a few notches crossbreeding prim-n-proper dresses with sporty bombers, knitted caps and pumps. Would you be able to throw in the right bag with this hot look? Lloyd & Wolf Couture has the right bag for any woman’s fashion and lifestyle. The brand offers beautifully constructed craftsmanship in exceptionally handmade leather for tasteful designs that compliment your style. It features modern, punk/grunge flair, hardware in edgy details and focusing and simple lines and continuity.

Got a last minute meeting to attend, toss everything you need in the exclusive Lloyd & Wolf Couture “Charlie” bag that’s roomy enough to fit a tablet and your next big promotion. Go from day to night and pair with an oversized faux fur and look just as stunning. Drag “Steffi” along for tours across Europe and wind up at a quaint bistro reminiscing on great photos you’ve captured. No matter the time or place Lloyd & Wolf Couture transcends its fashion classically that will last a lifetime.

What are the origins of the name ‘Lloyd & Wolf’?.
Lloyd & Wolf was named for my Father-in-Law Lloyd Thompson, who passed away suddenly in 2006, and my own Father, Wolfgang Stefani. My husband came up with the name when I was playing around with family names trying to find some way of honoring my family.

What do you think are the biggest trends right now?
I find it very exciting in fashion these days, as it seems that anything goes. I love the mix of high/low and ripped up jeans and tailored tux jackets. There is more freedom and more room for self-expression. We used to save the fancy pieces for special occasions, now anything goes and I love that.

What trends are you seriously tired of and hope will remain in 2013?
Hailing from the West Coast, I am seriously tired of active wear as street wear. Get dressed already! There is so much fun to be had with all that is available these days, let’s leave the Lycra at the gym!

What was the inspiration for your newest collection?
My first inspiration always comes from the leather itself, and next is what piece I feel is missing in my collection. Our new Charlie satchel was a long time coming! I struggled with what I wanted it to look like, and one day a light bulb went off and I just knew I had it.

Who do you envision wearing this collection?
We have a bit of a punk/grunge flair going on, but done tastefully and not trashy. Our brand is really edgy luxe, and being very limited edition it is certainly something for the more discerning fashionista.

Where can Lloyd &Wolf be purchased and at what price points?
Prices range from $85 - $850 - - www.lloydandwolf.com.

What's next for Lloyd & Wolf?
We’ll continue to forge our own path adding a few new styles and expanding our line slowly, while remaining true to our brand philosophy of being “fiercely individual”.
