A Harmless Project: LaBante
This week A Harmless Project goes to London and features the Kensington bag from LaBante. This PETA approved vegan brand will keep you on trend all year round with their trendy and chic bags. Their current collection is effortlessly stylable, and timeless; the rich color and textures are bold but easy to wear. These bags truly feel special, get your hands on one and you'll see what I mean!
Their motto “Fashion With Respect" is the central mission for this brand. Without compromising style, this label creates cruelty free accessories using only the highest quality vegan materials (like exceptionally lovely polyurethane for their bags and polyester for their linings). Oh, did I mention it's fully lined and has an interior pocket? Well, it does.
When you handle these bags you really get the sense that a lot of thought and time went into crafting each one. Everything on the Kensington from the magnetic closure and the stitching to the zippers to the chain feel deliberate and you can sense the hours of love that went into its design and manufacture. This bag is, in my opinion, the perfect little black bag and will last you forever. It will immediately become your go-to bag for all occasions. The sight chevron stitching and delicate gold hardware will provide the perfect high-end touches to polish off your outfits and it will seamlessly take you through every season without hesitation.
I paired the Kensington bag with a textured, minimal midi dress from Third Form. The high cut slit on the side, asymmetric hem, textured fabric, and soft cowled neck give this dress all the drama and sex appeal it needs to be understated and unforgettable. It is the perfect match for the Kensington; the ensemble isn't overpowering but also can't be ignored! The oxfords are from Sam Edelman and are made from 100% synthetic materials; no leather here!
