The Egg Bag, by Lemaire
Known for their exquisite cuts and beautiful designs, Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran - artistic directors of Lemaire - excel in leather goods, too. But don't expect anything flashy; at Lemaire things are kept raw, simple and pure. The creative duo creates an air of casual elegance and androgynous sensuality in their otherwise minimalist designs. This aesthetic approach is perfectly illustrated in the aptly-named "Egg bag" featuring the familiar curves and domed shell.
With its perfectly studied proportions, the bag consists of a single piece of leather entirely moulded by hand. The leather is pressed on wood to start, then manually moulded and massaged by artisans before drying in the sun. A built-in magnetic handle offers soft opening and closing, while its discreet and elegant strap lets you wear it as a cross-body, too.
In a clever mix of fashion and function, its spacious interior means you can pop in everything you need without worrying about running out of space. Offering a sleek and sculptural look - half object, half bag - this daring design is a substitute for perfection.
