One of my absolute favorite things about living in Paris is discovering new fashion concepts, trends, and brands!
Just like this city inspires me, it has the ability to inspire many. I was fortunate enough to be able to a meet and greet with the head of L’Atelier Paris, Bruno Fleurquin, a new mover on the luxury handbags and accessories front.
I have to say, the designs, quality, and craftsmanship for each item is outstanding. For years I have wanted a timeless, classic handbag. This is it.
I know I say this all the time, but it’s essential that you invest in some timeless pieces for your style. Adding a handbag from L’atelier is a perfect fit. I was fortunate enough to try out a couple of handbags. I loved every one of them. Each of them had a unique appeal. I feel very strongly that this is a bag that will look good today as well as be fashionable in ten years.
My favorite part of L’Atelier Paris is the vision for the brand. Their idea is that quality handbags can be affordable. The leather used is the best of its kind. The craftsmen are skilled workers here in France. Fleurquin found that by tightly controlling the sales process, via online storefront and select popup stores, the savings could be passed on to the buyer. So having a top quality handbag is achievable without having to pay thousands of dollars.
L’Atelier is planning on doing a limited release via Kickstarter this Wednesday and fully releasing the brand in April of 2017. The release will allow the full collection to be sold online and in popup stores (NYC, Paris, Shanghai). Thank you for reading, and don’t forget to check out their Kickstarter!
