Launched in April 2017, L.O.N.B. is a timeless collection of mindful luxury leather goods created for lives in motion.
Beautiful and practical, our collection brings refinement, elegance and ease to the everyday journey. Each detail, from the outside to the inside, reflects a balance of relaxed confidence and intuitive purpose. Our wearer moves through their day with effortlessness and grace.
The collection, crafted from the finest Italian and French leathers, is made exclusively in Italy. Soft and supple materials are brought to life by the most caring and skilful hands to unite form, function and soul.
Our philosophy, Love or Nothing, baby, reflects the committed passion and relaxed confidence of everything we do. The inside matters as much as the outside.
We believe in mindful luxury: designing and producing responsibly, with clear intention and purpose.
With this in mind, our collection is timeless, perfected and rooted in customer-centricity. Each piece is created with a specific journey in mind, therefore we only develop a new product if a journey has yet to be designed for. This school of thought allows us to fully consider and perfect each design before we bring it to market, avoiding seasonal pressure, duplication and waste.
We thoroughly test each product in extreme conditions to ensure its lasting quality. Each piece is designed to get better with time as our high-quality natural leathers develop patina and character to become even softer and slouchier. Solid brass hardware, symmetrical zippers and artisanal stitching further supports the endurance of each piece.
Our suppliers produce responsibly by focusing on creating only the highest quality materials and finished goods. Transparency of work is vital for our partnerships to ensure our exacting standards.
We create products for discerning clients who carefully select the objects they bring into their lives. The consideration for our clients is at the core of everything we do. Each piece is created to become a cherished belonging, meant to be passed down from generation to generation.
L.O.N.B. was created by Melissa Morris and Reinhard Mieck.
With lives frequently in motion, Reinhard and Melissa appreciate objects which not only reflect timeless and refined design, but also which ease their lives, moving seamlessly with each step. They found this especially absent in luxury leather goods as they searched for bags which were as attuned to their dynamic lives as they were to style and quality. With this clearly missing from the market, Reinhard and Melissa created L.O.N.B.
At the cornerstone of our collection is our signature item, The Runaway.
The Runaway is a panel which organizes the essential items you never leave home without. It allows peace of mind that all is in place and easy to access when needed.
The Runaway effortlessly clips into each of our larger day and overnight bags. It may also be removed and folded together to transition to a small shoulder bag or portfolio.
Double entry pockets ensure it is as intuitive to use when folded as when clipped inside a larger bag.
The Runaway’s interior is made from Alcantara in our house colour Amarone. This interior is applied to all of our bags so The Runaway will look seamless when paired with any larger bag.
The Runaway is a patent pending concept.
