WANT Les Essentiels Spring/Summer 2017

The economics of need and want often do not apply when it comes to fashion. Ornate window displays and glass-encased velvet cushions showcasing sparkly objects just slightly out of reach suggest a philosophy more connected to the juxtaposition between unattainability and burning desire. We see, we have to have, but when this immediate instinct is satiated by goods that are both functional and beautiful, gratification becomes essential.

This is why we must have WANT Les Essentiels, a leather accessories brand that marries versatile wardrobe staples with sophisticated design and premium materials. Their impeccably crafted range of handbags takes inspiration from modern travel, packaging solutions for city-dwellers, jetsetters and “people in motion” into timeless silhouettes that are both covetable and utilitarian.

The Spring 17 collection features a color palette of dusty pastels and subtle earth tones invigorated by modern hardware and detailing. The use of perforated suede, architectural gold closures, or the angled zipper on their classic backpack add a touch of futurism, and serve to remind us that necessity deserves elegance just as the sky merits the color blue.
