"We are thrilled to have Latico Leathers as this year's ICONOCLAST Recipient for the 14th Handbag Awards.

We are even more excited to be the first to recognize Paul and Lainie's story of 30 years of leather authenticity, much like Carlos Falchi to which we rebranded this honor. It's long overdue and very well deserved," said Emily Blumenthal, Founder of The Handbag Awards.
