The Le City line features the silhouette in various sizes, colourways and finishes, with the campaign specifically showcasing the bag in black and white materialised from textured leather.

The bag first hit the scene in 2001 and has been a staple in fashion enthusiasts’ wardrobes ever since. It is maximalist yet functional, ideal for daily duties, making even the most common responsibilities stylish.

The new launch is made from Arena leather and finished with Palladium Vibrato hardware, with its characterising features demonstrating metal buckles embellishing each corner and small studs carefully placed, giving the bag its familiar edge.

Concluding the design are leather zipper pulls, braided leather handles and an exterior which gradually obtains a unique patina as the bag ages, providing its innate vintage aesthetic.
