Leather Island Belts
Leather Island belts are known for their fun twist on what might otherwise be a boring accessory. You wonít find a boring or traditional belt with Leather Island.
Leather Island belts were created by Bill Lavin. Mr. Lavin spent countless weekends scouring flea markets in search of vintage belts for his personal collection. He caught the eye of Fred Segal and Ralph Lauren, who were both impressed by Lavinís natural eye for his artistic style. Movie stars such as Brad Pitt and Madonna are dedicated buyers of the expressive belts and have been seen wearing them at various public events.
LEATHER ISLAND BELTS
Every belt at Leather Island is created with materials that have been hand picked by professionals. Bill Lavin, founder of Leather Island belts, once said, "When I design any belt, the price is never a consideration or a concession. I just use the best leathers I can find in the world." Quality leather makes all the difference. A cheaper material or a leather that is not top quality may peel over time and need to be replaced time and time again.
Leather Island belts are not for the "faint of art.Ē Artistic individuals who are looking for a way to express themselves through their clothing often choose Leather Island. Lavin created his belts with a rock Ďní roll vibe. Designs infused with music, art or social activism are combined to create a unique accessory that expresses the opinions of the person wearing the piece. People are constantly searching for a way to tastefully individualize their style, and Lavin has provided a fun way to do so.
Britney Spears, Bruce Springsteen and Orlando Bloom have all been spotted wearing Lavinís belts. Accessories that match their vibrant and artistic personalities have become a favorite item. Leather Island belts span the globe and are favorites in Australia, Canada, Japan, and of course, America. It is not hard to see why the word about these belts has traveled so quickly. Ordinary belts may have become a thing of the past with the revolutionary trend that has taken over so many countries.
Mr. Lavinís belts explode with color and texture. Diamonds, studs, large graphic prints and animal skin are seen throughout his collection. Lavin saw the belts that were being produced and realized that something was lacking. Most were black and brown, made from cheap materials and dull metals. He decided to take an accessory that is worn almost every day for every occasion and put his own spin on it.
Leather Island belts have been described as a walking story. Some are designed with heavy, chunky belts, silver studs and quirky beading. Some have graphics of people, events or artwork, added for a personal touch. Each belt goes through a four-piece construction process, which results in some of the softest belts on the market. The only consistency you will find with Lavinís creations are the thickness of the belts. Chunky and sturdy are the highest priority and extra material sets these pieces above their competitors.
