Trust Me: This Elegant, Anti-Trend Handbag Brand Is About to Be Everywhere

In the world of handbags, there are so many brands around we can feel a little spoilt for choice. There are high-end designer styles that have legacy and craft engrained in each stitch, whilst the high street always proves to be a lucrative stop for a chic silhouette at an affordable price-point. There's also a great deal available in the middle within the mid-range contemporary bracket. With various options around, it takes something really special for a new brand to break through the noise. But with the approval of fashion insiders and celebrities, that's exactly what Métier has done.

Rosie carriers the large Perriand.

Born in London and handcrafted in Italy, Métier is all about beautiful, well-made, and highly aesthetic leather goods. The handbags themselves sit in the investment category by price, but if you are looking for that one special piece, I'd recommend starting here. What's allowed Métier to turn the heads of fashion people is the conscious consideration for each aspect of design that goes into its creations, made to last and become a treasured pillar in your wardrobe.

The silhouettes are formed with thought over the comfort of sitting under an arm, or the addition of a strap for various ways to wear. Designed from the inside out, complimentary shades of leather outline the inner section of the bags, with useful features like zips and magnetic closures to keep your treasures in place whether jetting off on holiday, or running to catch the train.

Sylvie Mus carries the small Perriand. 

In line with the classic nature of the designs, which ensures their longevity as icons rather than momentary favourites, the brand relies on tried and true silhouettes. The styles are thoughtfully designed to ensure practicality coexists with function. And yet each features a creative edge, from the seaming to the closures that makes them wholly Métier in style.

There's no bells and whistles, no large logos, just dependence on craft and quality that makes this bag recognisable to fashion observers, and worthy of its price tag. Whether you're treating yourself or someone else, this Métier has encompassed he kind of understated subtlety that sits at the heart of quiet luxury, promising timelessness in design and quality of creation.
