Designer of the Day…Manimal

Today’s designer is great for offbeat accessory design. Manimal has a really great collection of jewelry and footwear that uses a lot of leather and inspiration from the Southwest U.S.

Manimal is helmed by designer Kristen Lombardi whom was inspired by the craftmanship and aesthetic of the American Southwest after a visit in 2004. The pieces in the Manimal collections are handcrafted and are influenced by the attention to detail that was a great part of the cultures in that region of the U.S. I really like the moccasins of Manimal. They look comfortable and I bet they’re well made.
