Minimalists, Building Block Will Be Your New Handbag Obsession
Less is more — and it’s oh-so good.
Edit out the excess — that’s been sisters Nancy and Kimberly Wu’s ethos since 2011, when they launched Building Block after deciding to only focus on the essentials of life. The LA-based bag brand does without the superfluous, the result being a collection of silhouettes minimalists — or anyone who appreciates solid design and a clean aesthetic — will obsess over.
Both it-bag worthy yet timeless, Building Block goes back to the basics. Even the models’ names are uncomplicated: Disc, Bucket, Cylinder, Box, Petite. However their simplicity is matched by high-quality production using Italian leathers paired with understated, playful touches using tassels, rubber, wood or plexiglas in the details. Take a look at a few styles offered in fall-ready navy and olive green, then head to the website for more.
