Our Vision

How it all started

Our inspiration and vision for Harper Lawrence was born in 2015. We felt there was a need for modern luxury handbags offered directly to consumers and featured in select retail stores. We both had earlier careers in fashion (Heather Harper as a publicity executive at Anne Klein and Laura Lawrence Wilcock as a buyer at Saks Fifth Avenue) in New York City. We reunited in NYC after Laura and her family returned from London.

We pivoted into different fields but remained passionate about those paths; Heather as Co-Founder of London Bridges Interiors and Laura as Founder of North Star Life Coaching. However, we had been missing the creativity and design from our earlier careers, and we both had the dream of creating a collection of handbags.

After months of researching, traveling, creating and designing, we decided to produce handbags in Italy and launched our Harper Lawrence line with The Lawrence Tote, in 2016.

Our infinity logo represents our philanthropic ethos of giving back to others. Part of every purchase is donated to World Vision to help educate and empower women and girls.

Giving Back

Our designs are crafted in Florence, Italy, where the attention to detail is outstanding. We use only the finest quality calf leather and suede for all of our products.

Handcrafted Quality

Harper Lawrence was created to produce a line of elegant handbags which express clean elements of style, without sacrificing functionality.
