About Viv & Edie

“I just want a common, run of the mill bag like everyone else’s.”
- Boring people

You’re one of a kind.

So why would you carry the same lame bag everyone else has? Show off your unique style with a Viv & Edie bag, instead.

I'm Laura Shape, owner and designer of Viv & Edie. I was born with an eye for detail, a love of luxe, and an overwhelming need to make beautiful things. You want well-crafted bags that feel special and rare, with gleaming hardware, delectable leather, and lush linings? You're in the right place.

I design and decorate each Viv & Edie handbag in my Denver studio and have them cut and sewn by a luxury bag manufacturer in L.A. I use only the best materials - like full-grain cowhide leather, solid brass hardware, and Riri zippers - and treat the people who make my products fairly.

I produce my bags a handful at a time and each has its own handcrafted variation, so just like you, your Viv & Edie bag will always be one of a kind.

It's nice to meet you,
Laura

I'm Laura J. Shape. Nice to meet you!

 

Wait, if you're Laura, who are Viv & Edie?

Viv & Edie are my imaginary muses. They're all the women I love and aspire to be. They're funny, interesting, and well-traveled. They love a good brunch, a good cocktail, and a good book. They're effortlessly chic, a little glam, and always down for a good time. They've been around – if it was hip, they were there – but they're still curious, adventurous, and like to keep it fresh. They're a little Palm Springs, a little Studio 54, and a little this picture.
