Ateliers Auguste

    Good design, functionality and the desire to encourage local artisanship seems to be the winning formula behind the smartly crafted men's bags and accessories by Ateliers Auguste. Named after a metro station, brothers Laurent and Xavier Valembert opened shop in December 2013, occupying an industrial-type space in the Bastille area. The small series collection of totes, backpacks, weekenders, messengers and laptop cases wear their "Made in France" badge proudly, being manufactured in a 60-year old artisan workshop in western France's Vendée and fitted with high-quality and resistant materials (full grain leather from the Loire, woven straps from northern France, wax-coated fabrics from the UK). Forms and shapes remain classic, but certain details, like a splash of color in the lining or various leather compartments, lend them a retro-yet-modern look. Inspired by urban mobility, the brand becomes a compelling modern man's accessory: a bag to be seen with while riding a bike, catching the metro, cruising around in a Vespa or simply walking to work. Products are named after various French quarters - Montorgueil, Ménilmontant, Belleville - no doubt a homage to the city whose authenticity and energy Ateliers Auguste strives to promote.Show lessRead more
