Born and raised in Italy, Laura moved to London in the early 80s to take a gap year before starting university.
During her studies she would go back and forth to Paris and London, where she was inspired by the music and art in both cities.
While experimenting with different materials like silk, lace, chains, semi-precious stones and more, Laura came across the mesh: a metallic fabric used in the 20s for evening bags. She was fascinated by its light and texture. And from then on, it has been Laura’s constant challenge to find renewal within the limits of one material, the mesh.
The mesh took more relevance in continuing collections and little by little became the signature material of the brand. Women’s mesh bags are nowadays a very strong part of Laura B.
