In the village of Lectoure, where the Royal Leather Manufacture opened its doors in 1754, flows a spring by the name of Diane. The House of Joseph Duclos is paying homage to its Occitan roots and taking inspiration from this goddess to design a collection in refined, streamlined lines.
The Saint-Clair collection is an ode to tradition, from the lines that have shaped it to the techniques that have fashioned it. Its straight and streamlined cuts are reminiscent of 18th-century royal cases, which gave those who carried them a noble, honourable bearing. Its clasps have been engraved with a coat of arms featuring Joseph Duclos’ initials. They lend the Saint-Clair shoulder bags and clutches a proud air with a discreet power.
The Lectoure collection gives pride of place to the Occitan village where the Royal Leather Manufacture was established in 1754. In this cradle of French luxury, nature is generous and encouraged the workers to develop their know-how, so admired by Louis XV. Whether a tote bag, clutch, pouch or card holder, each piece pays tribute to this stately heritage. They will give you a distinguished air, with an undeniable dash of refinement.
With its lilting name whose Latin roots evoke invigorating fountains, the Fontélie collection is inspired by the springs that burst forth from the rocks in Lectoure. Its handbags with a modern grandeur have been designed for everyday wear.
