is a way of thinking - with curiosity and wit
is a way of living - with efficiency and composition
is a way of dressing - with color and surprise
a poetic tribute to the geometry and function that distinguishes the brand.

O is for circle
A is for triangle
D is for semi-circle

Within these constraints of simplicity, we find the beauty and we play. We play with color and pattern. We play with function and form. We play with doing more with less.
Beautiful Utility
OAD creates functional (and fun) handbags and accessories (and more!) that carry conversations - and your belongings.

Precise pockets.
Well-designed details.
Customizable comfort.
Multi-functional uses.
And a playful point of view on everything else.
acute yet abstract
odd yet even
sensible but surprising
curious. composed. creative.

How It's Made
OAD leather goods are responsibly and ethically made in a family owned factory in Seoul, South Korea. Each thoughtfully edited collection is produced in small batch runs in order to minimize waste. Each item is carefully designed to fulfill the idea of being beautiful, well crafted, and practical while also being mindful of the impact on our environment.

About the Designer
OAD was founded in 2015 by Syndey Suh-Lee, a former shoe and handbag designer for Calvin Klein and accessories designer for the cult brand Kate Spade Saturday. Sydney started OAD because she couldn’t find a handbag that was sufficiently organized and satisfied her love of clean lines and color. From there, OAD was born.

While not rooted in any location, OAD is currently based in NYC and in Sydney’s hometown of Seoul, South Korea where she is able to source her materials and work closely with local manufacturers and artisans.

"Inspired by geometry, designed by function,
simplified by sophistication, and always doing more with less."
