Lancel, a globally-recognised, century-old brand of leather goods.
The brand Lancel and its sophisticated accessories came into existence thanks to the talent of a couple named Adolphe and Adèle Lancel. When cigarette-smoking becoming popular with the ladies, the brand started making cigarette cases and smaller bags for a similar purpose. Between the two world wars, the founder's son, Albert Lancel took over at the helm of Lancel but continued to champion the same values of audacity and innovation the French label had always held so dear. Certain of the brand's most iconic products would come into existence at that moment in time. That is true for the umbrella bag, the brand's famous trunk and the bucket bag. With each new design the brand brought out, Lancel's aim was to amaze customers but also to meet their demanding expectations.
Lancel handbags, a reflection of the brand's know-how.
Lancel women's bags are perfectly adapted to the lifestyle of contemporary women. Holidays became a permanent fixture in the lives of French people with the advent of paid leave. Lancel therefore created a soft bag in canvas which was easy to transport for a weekend away. As the years and successive collections passed, Lancel's desire to bring out ever-more innovating and attainable designs grew even greater. In the noughties, Lancel went back to high-end items made of exceptional leathers and elaborated with utmost care right down to the finishes. The palette of colours and the choice of styles continued to be wide and varied so that all customers could find a design they could relate to and which would be with them each moment of every day.

Lines of bags by Lancel have always been a perfect match for exceptional women. Actresses like Isabelle Adjani and Alice Taglioni have taken on the role of brand ambassador, as has the swimming champion Laure Manaudou. The idea for Lancel was to associate their bags with a younger, more dynamic image. Vestiaire Collective is a source of inspiration in the realm of bags, which are many women's favourite accessories.
