JOHNNY FARAH: LEATHER LUXURY

JOHNNY FARAH: LEATHER LUXURY

Johnny Farah is a Lebanese designer of handbags, belts, shoes and leather accessories for both men and women.  His early interest in design was fostered during his time living in Denmark when he became fascinated by the Scandinavian simple line approach to architecture and furniture design.

Living and working in Beirut where his creativity runs to owning an organic farm and two restaurants, Johnny’s JF stores first appeared in Beirut in the 70’s. Today he owns JF stores in Beirut, New York and Dubai in addition to his concept store in Lebanon’s capital. From 1990 – 1994 he launched and developed Donna Karan and Donna Karan men lines of handbags and belts. The label is sold worldwide with retailers across Europe, the Middle East and USA, Asia and online.

All pieces are designed and manufactured in Lebanon using leather goods of earthy tones moulded from premium quality vegetable-tanned leathers. Both leather and brass hardware is custom made for each single item resulting in unique pieces with a distinctive style.

Johnny Farah’s latest collection takes inspiration from the earthy tones of cracked leather giving a range of fashionable, functional bags with a vintage appeal. All are structured to fit modern technologies including stunning ipad and computer accessories.
