Farbod Barsum New Beverly Hills Boutique Offers Luxury Handbags

Shop the new Farbod Barsum boutique in Beverly Hills.

“More is more” is the look du jour at the new Farbod Barsum boutique in Beverly Hills.

Designer Farbod Barsum’s couture exotic-skin handbags—spotted on the arms of red-carpet beauties such as Christina Hendricks and Brittany Snow—are showstoppers, as is the shop’s new Beverly Hills outpost, which boasts striato olimpico marble and 13 crystal chandeliers. But the look isn’t mere fancy veneer: A protégé of the late Bijan Pakzad of the House of Bijan, Barsum has degrees in art history, fashion design and architecture, all of which inform the painstaking construction and attention to his bags’ details, inside and out. Plus, although materials such as pirarucu fish and karung snake might make a vegan shudder, they’re sustainably harvested and dyed in chrome-free tanneries. Opulent and smart. 9456 Dayton Way, Beverly Hills, 310.276.9456. farbodbarsum.com
