We’ve all heard of the major Parisian bag brands: Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Chloé… the list goes on. But France is the birthplace of numerous other accessories labels, many of which you may never have heard of.
So, I’ve decided to introduce you to five French handbag brands that I think deserve more attention. One whose dresses and knitwear you might be familiar with already, another you’ve probably seen on some of your favourite influencers without realising it. Hopefully, a couple on the list will be entirely new to you.
They all have one thing in common, though. From each, you’re sure to find an edit of elegant, love-forever bags, carefully crafted from premium materials. What else could we expect from French designers? It’s a nation whose refined sartorial spirit inspires fashion enthusiasts the world over, so it makes sense that it would have a design sensibility to match.
