Jitrois launches Margot handbag collection for Autumn/Winter 2011
Jean-Claude Jitrois is a clothing line known for its aesthetics that combine the best of luxury leathers, furs and skins. Now the fashion house has launched a luxury bag, the “Margot,” for Autumn/Winter 2011.
Popular for its innovative use of leather and other luxury skins, Jitrois is most famous for its stretch leather pants. Jitrois’ leather pieces have even caught the eyes of Lady Gaga, Beyoncé Knowles, Rihanna and Vanessa Paradis, all of whom have been spotted wearing its designs.
The Margot bag adopts three luxurious guises: deep aqua crocodile, pearl gray python and soft silk leather. Each version displays sharp and structured lines, reminiscent of styles from the1950s. Jitrois’ choice of exotic skins such as genuine crocodile and python sets the Margot apart from other luxury bags. The bags are entirely handcrafted in France, displaying fine work from French ateliers.
Meticulous care was taken to create an outer shell casing in crocodile, python and leather that elegantly envelopes the interior. The bag’s finishing touch is the handle, stitched by hand at its base on a leather mount with loops of polished steel. With its sturdy handle and removable shoulder strap, the bag easily transitions from day to night.
In a subtle, modern touch, the Margot can also function as a hyper-luxury e-tablet case, featuring a zippered, made-to-measure inner compartment that perfectly encloses any iPad, eReader or tablet device.
The perfect luxe addition to any woman’s wardrobe, the Margot blends the functionality of a sophisticated bag with the hyper-modernity of our age.
The Margot bag is now available at Jitrois boutiques and Jitrois.com.
