Local Finds: Leacre

Shopping, Boutiques Itaewon

Luxury brand bags have become practically commonplace in fashion-conscious Seoul—to really stand out (and support small businesses), check out the growing scene of small, local designers with limited runs, like Leacre. The owner studied design in Milan before coming back to Seoul and launching her line of lovely leather bags with a showroom in the Gyeongnidan hills.

The owner sources her leather from Italy and bases her designs on the concept of minimalist form with individuality: Most bags in her collection are composed of slim, layered pouches in a variety of colors that can be rearranged at will. In addition to bags, the Leacre showroom also features a glass case of jewelry from Thai designer SATADA, who works primarily with pearls.
