Moreau-Paris, a luxury French brand of leather goods, comes to Japan for the first time. The brand currently holds a pop-up at Isetan Shinjuku (1F). Open until Feb 4.

The bags, wallets, card cases and more are made in France. The brand limits the number of metal fittings by carefully tanning the leather and finishing off the products with hand sewing.

The signature tote bag introduces cowhide on the exterior and goatskin dyed in the iconic color royal blue on the interior. The brand logo is discreetly inscribed on the interior. Check patterns are also iconic to the brand which is inspired from the suitcase from the debut collection adorned with weaves of willow tree branches. Some of the items of the check pattern series are labeled with the address of the first store for the brand. The bags are available in three sizes. The large size comes with a flap cover. Priced from 346,500 yen for tote bags.

Moreau-Paris began as a producer of travel articles in the middle of the 19th century. It designed a lineup of luxury leather goods such as trunks and accessories until the beginning of the 20th century after which the brand closed. The brand re-started in 2011 and opened a store in Paris in October 2012. Its collections are available in Paris and at Barneys New York. The brand will make its debut in the Japanese market this fall with Kuipo Co., Ltd. as the import agent.
