The Josephine collection from Lancel goes from globe-trotting chic to casual everyday wear.
Urban, daring and sophisticated, the latest collection from Lancel gets its name from the founder’s daughter, known for breaking convention in her time. This included travelling the Riviera in 1876 with a large sturdy bag, obviously a no-no in those days.
Hence the Josephine collection, with its uncomplicated and feminine lines.
Ranging from clutches and totes to wallets and phone sleeves, it’s based on the Haute Maroquinerie concept (high leather goods).
Consisting of several key bags, the collection’s clean and pure lines enhance its refined details.
The Shopper is the large everyday companion, whereas the Satchel is ideal for those who prefer something lighter.
A true juxtaposition of masculine and feminine, it is clever and practical especially through the use of colour blocking in monochrome, black, clay, dove, light blue and coral.
Carried on the hip by its long straps or hand-held, these two volumes have an inner pocket with a zip and two additional pockets on the facade.
The refined and discreet decorative stitching is applied ton-sur-ton (tone-on-tone).
For the Champagne, the metal clasp becomes the distinctive element for the bag.
Inherited from the archives, it becomes a new emblem as it lends its masculine stamp on the sharp and sensual lines of that new collection. The day clutch, which is bound to become an evening favourite, is a chic accessory to carry anywhere.
Presented in seasonal colours or in exotic materials like black python, the day clutch is the essential accessory of the modern woman.
The Companion wallet is a simple and sophisticated line. It opens like an “L” which allows it to carry all the essentials such as documents, cards and cash.
The small accessories adopt the distinctive signs of the new Josephine collection and are in line with the tradition of the art of gifting that is held so dear to the Lancel house.
