Jasmin Larian // Cult Gaia
The OG Flower Crown goddess is none other than Jasmin. She created Cult Gaia and instantly took the world by storm with her unique flower crowns and is doing it again with her iconic Gaias Ark Bag.
An LA girl through and through, Jasmin Larian has a keen eye for weaving a whimsical Cali sensibility into her designs. This beauty has an incredible imagination; she added a major dose of glow into the world with her stunning flower crowns and playful headbands from her brand Cult Gaia. Now she's doing it again with her latest creation, the Gaia's Ark Bag. We're pretty obsessed with it, as is every other girl around and she hasn’t been able to keep the iconic bag in stock since it skyrocketed this Summer. With a waiting list of thousands…she is finally restocking TODAY.
This bamboo bag was inspired by vintage Japanese picnic bags and comes in two sizes ($88/small, $98/large).It's a real show-stopper and gives your wardrobe the perfect punch - a new classic meant to transcend trends. And to prove it - Cult Gaia is offering a lifetime warranty on the bag! It was picked up by Moda Operandi, Five Story and more and is now available in a lucite version on pre-order on MO - it’s oh-so-glowy and we will both be rocking it proudly.
