La Mer Collections was created from a desire to produce handcrafted, beautiful yet artful pieces made in America, inspired by the color of travel and adventure, and rooted in the freedom of expression. Every piece is made with close attention to detail as we take pride in creating quality pieces that are affordable, chic and lot of fun to wear.
And it all began in 2001 when Martine Ilana took a soulful approach to creating the original wrap watch with a piece of purple-heart wood, a hammer and some Italian leather.
As La Mer grew we started shooting our lookbooks on location, and sourcing leather, textiles and raw materials from all over the the world. From the vibrant markets of South Africa to crystals from Brazil, combining elements from across the globe to create a watch, was our goal.
