The Lloyd & Wolf brand is a uniquely limited-run, couture-oriented brand of handcrafted leather accessories designed to reflect our customers’ fierce individuality. Each of our production runs are limited in quantity; none of which feature predictability, boredom or the look of the status quo. We steadfastly believe in rock, roll, honor and a life lived on 10.

After a 10 year hiatus from Fashion raising her family, Larissa decided to combine her passion for handbags with her background in Fashion. Not interested in designing clothing anymore, her lifelong love of working with leather naturally progressed into accessories. The excitement for channeling her creative spirit into something fresh and new propelled her forward and Lloyd & Wolf was born at her dining room table.

The Lloyd&Wolf Couture Brand is the creative genius of Vancouver based designer Larissa Stefani. Larissa learned to sew at a very young age when her mother noted her attempts at stapling bits of fabric together for her Barbies, and found her private sewing lessons with a retired instructor from the UK. Larissa has a Fine Arts background, is an Honors Graduate of Fashion Design, Award Winner, and worked in the Vancouver Fashion industry for over a decade.

"When I made my first bag I didn’t set out to follow in the wake of anything else I’d seen before. I wanted to blaze my own trail and come up with something different, something that matched my own eccentricity. I am continually inspired by opposing forces, contrasting textures and things that are just a little off kilter be they in nature, art, or music."

The entire reason for Lloyd & Wolf's existence is to be a limited edition couture oriented brand. This format enables me to work freely and constantly, with little concern for the constraints of the Fashion world's designated seasons. My first steps are finding amazing leathers and letting them guide me in what shapes and structures will show them off the best. Sometimes figuring our what kind of bag I'd like to carry can be the starting point, or having a client tell me they need something for a certain purpose.

The unique limited edition approach to the Lloyd and Wolf brand ensures that our clients have something truly special they won't see anywhere else. Our bags are handcrafted using only the highest quality leathers sourced from Italy, Spain and the USA. For this reason we have developed a loyal cult following, and have expanded our reach by collaborating with a local highly sought after jewellery designer on a capsule collection of luxury evening bags. This collaboration has secured Lloyd and Wolf's status as a go to brand for fiercely individual luxury leather goods.
