Around the time that state and federal officials began encouraging quarantines and enforcing state lockdowns, Leah announced her plans: “SL face masks will be available for purchase tomorrow! 100% cotton denim, double lined, durable, breathable, washable & 100% made with love! Let’s keep each other safe! A portion of proceeds will be going toward Covid-19 relief.”
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the masks, which were retailed at an incredibly affordable $25, sold out pretty quickly especially given her 15 percent off quarantine sale.

Leah dropped her line last summer, which focuses on structured denim with her little flair, lace of rear. Each pair as a person’s name, such as ‘Mo, Deja, Sam and Simone and ranges from $225-$250 and most styles go up to size 38.
