A Year in Review

A Year in Review
With 2018 on the horizon, we pause to reflect on an impactful and innovative year of fewer, better things. We define this year as women empowering women: through the creation of essential pieces that introduce ease, through fresh collaborations by like-minded brands that value intentionality, and through telling the inspiring stories of females who challenge us to think differently and take chances.
Instant Icons
Our collection of elevated essentials grew with thoughtful new pieces in clothing and accessories. A couple of our original designs stood out as the most sought-after of the year.

The Backpack

The Backpack

An elegant alternative to a sportif staple, our backpack considers every last element, down to its exquisite Italian craftsmanship and endless functionality. Its distinctively feminine silhouette is set apart by detachable back and shoulder straps so you can transition at a moment’s notice.

The Classic Structured Tote

The Classic Structured Tote

The evolution of an iconic bag: bonded, double-face Italian leather redefines the silhouette of our Classic Leather Tote with an architectural aesthetic. Selective details like interior lateral ties give it an unexpected design touch when looped in a bow.
In Partnership
The year brought noteworthy partnerships in collaboration with some of our favorite lifestyle brands.

We took our discerning design ethos to New York Fashion Week in collaboration with Creatures of the Wind. We partnered to create an inventively transitional bag silhouette to complete the aesthetic of the Spring 2018 Collection titled Further.

x La Ligne

Inspired by the fast-paced lifestyle of our female founders, our capsule collection in collaboration with the ladies of La Ligne was designed for effortless travel.
Essential Women
This year, we created the Cuyana Essential Women Series to celebrate the beauty in which women empower one another through their shared stories as entrepreneurs, mothers, friends, philanthropists and beyond. An essential woman is driven in business yet defined by her a softness of character embodied through humility and kindness.
We’ve celebrated multifaceted women from Ayesha Curry to Jessica Alba, who have built incredible companies, given passionately through philanthropy and dedicated themselves whole-heartedly to their families.
All About Impact

Lean Closet

Lean Closet

Our Lean Closet movement was created alongside our brand in 2013 to ensure that the philosophy of fewer, better things is synonymous with the act of giving back. Each donation we have received for Lean Closet throughout the year has gone directly to our non-profit partners at H.E.A.R.T., part of the Violence Intervention Program (VIP). From drives throughout the country to making a one-for-one donation of our own for each purchase made on Black Friday, we’ve made an impact together.

Global Craftsmanship

Global Craftsmanship

Our craftsmanship is deeply rooted in heritage, skillful execution and a culture of artisans we have worked hard to discover around the world.
