S. T. Dupont was founded by Simon Tissot Dupont in Paris in 1847, and became a leading name in leather goods production. This year, S.T.Dupont has re-connected with its original Malletier roots, as it re-opened its made-to-measure workshop in its original location at Faverges, a small town at the foot of the French Alps. A full range of ladies handbags, travel cases, luggage and small leather goods have been launched, identifiable by the prestigious 1920s double D monogram. Fittingly, President Sarkozy chose S.T. Dupont to create a bespoke wedding case for Prince William and The Duchess Of Cambridge.
As timeless and glamorous as its namesake, at the centre of S.T. Dupontʼs ladies handbag collection is the ʻAudreyʼ. A tribute to Audrey Hepburn, one of the first owners of what was originally known as the ʻRivieraʼ bag, this historically prestigious bag has been recreated using S.T. Dupontʼs ever-lasting expertise and emphasis on superlative quality.
For Thomas Erberʼs Cabinet de Curiosités at Browns, an even more exclusive version of the Audrey handbag has been produced. For the first, and only, time it has been crafted in opulent red ostrich.
