New York-based Sara Bar is a designer who can't hold back her creativity. After establishing a jewelry and watch brand, known for bold coloring and intricate details, her designs will now adorn yout head. This year, she collaborates hand-to-hand with aboriginal Ecuadorian women on a unique hat collection, giving 800 year-old traditions a louder voice.
Her wordly inspiration has long been fueled by a desire to travel and embrace different cultures, which began during her childhood trips to Paris every summer. Surrounded by the couture craftsmanship of Paris women, she developed an eye for high-quality materials and tailored designs.
These sensibilities were sharpened during her studies at design school and, after she graduated with honors, she began travelling across the globe for a year. During this momentous journey, she began acquiring materials that would be used for her very first collection. Today, Sara still gathers inspiration and materials during her world travels, but maintains production in her NYC design studio, surrounded by female artisians who share her desire for perfection.
Currently, the collection can be found around the world at Bloomingdale's, Harvey Nicholas, Shopbop.com, Nordstorm, Free People, Anthropologie, Cadenzza/Swarovski and other high-end department stores. As the brand continues to grow, it is unrestrained in creativity and persistent in redefining itself.
