Moving Mountains

Moving Mountains is a brand new design studio that produces bags and jewellery with a refined sense of simplicity and artful functionality. Designer Syrette Lew originally hails from Hawaii but is now based in Brooklyn, where she uses her skills as an industrial designer to create beautiful clean-lined handbags and accessories.

I love quality basics which are designed to last a lifetime and Moving Mountains fits that bill perfectly. The Compact bag is a careful study of shape, volume and proportion which is just big enough to hold all your daily essentials. The Suspension necklace is equally considered, with a single cord of waxed cotton interwoven through a solid brass bar hanging gracefully in the balance.

With plans to expand into men's accessories and home goods, I look forward to seeing what the brand does next.
