Rank & Style founders Jamie Chandlee, Beth Zerdecki and Dalton Young recently welcomed Leatherology’s Rae and David Liu to Austin with a private luncheon at Launderette. The brother/sister co-founders gathered with designers, entrepreneurs and style-setters to celebrate the debut of Leatherology’s mobile monogram trunk. The first of a few stops –Nashville and Charleston are up next – the brand also introduced their new fall colors including Electric Blue, which was inspired by Austin’s famed springs, natural beauty and eclectic street art. The duo also debuted a limited-edition, and Austin-inspired, print that pairs with the striking blue.
Throughout the event, guests were invited to customize a Leatherology accessory featuring the print, while experiencing the brand’s new mobile monogramming trunk. Leatherology, which is known for its high-quality bags and accessories, and detailed personalization, is a Dallas-based direct-to-consumer business. Each of their designs are personalized the old-school way – from hand-pressed monograms using heated brass dies, to hand-painted lettering.
Everyone at the delicious and festive luncheon was quickly charmed by David and Rae’s warmth, grace and obvious attention to creating beautiful and quality designs.
