“Early on, I would make bags and clothing out of upholstery and wallpaper samples from the office,” says Adam Davidson, who got into the world of accessories—just for fun!—while he was working as an architect. That was, until shop-owner pals of his encouraged him to turn his extracurricular into a full-fledged business.
So, in 2010, Adam created a capsule collection of three pieces, including the core style—the overnight Sea Bag—that he originally designed as a gift for his boyfriend. The trio was a hit among men and women straightaway. “At first I was trying to make everything unisex, but it ended up being too constraining,” he says. “Now I just let unisex happen when it wants to. My aesthetic is always unadorned and minimalist, so silhouettes are left open to interpretation.”
Over the course of the past few years, Adam has drawn on his Seattle upbringing and current NYC locale to grow his made-in-the-U.S.A. line AANDD in a big way—we’re talking backpacks, cross-body satchels, and totes made with materials like Argentine leathers and custom hardware cast in Rhode Island. “Of course, I’m glossing over all of the sleepless nights that the early days entailed,” Adam says. “I would run down to the Garment District on my lunch break. At the time, one of my close friends diagnosed me with ‘bagxiety.’” —alisha prakash
