Some bags seem destined for stardom. Though they are our ordinary, everyday companions, there is absolutely nothing ordinary or everyday about them. These bags have style – and more than style. A spirit. Perhaps even a soul.
Some have an illustrious past. They have accompanied the twists and turns of history, elegantly outlasted the vagaries of time and trends. Others have written their own success story, achieving cult status almost overnight.
All have a sense of identity so strong that – while they may adopt different sizes, colours or materials – their essence remains unchanged. These bags are individuals. It is only natural, therefore, that we should know them by their name.

Oh, the eternal allure of the equestrian! Named after the city of Saumur and its world-famous riding school, this thoroughbred design nods to the shape of a horse’s saddle. Derived from a hunter’s game bag, its two compartments, sturdily buckled together at the side, and its casual cross-body strap, make it the perfect choice for women who stride through life with style and spirit, bringing to their every movement an equestrian’s nonchalant grace.
