From everyone’s secret (and favourite) recently-revived small luxury goods house Fauré Le Page comes the Calibre 21, a new handbag that at first might look odd to those who are not in the know. Intrinsically tied to the French marque that first saw its origins as an armoury maker back when it was established in 1717, it even supplied arms to the French Revolution in 1789.
These days, however, Fauré Le Page is committed to the fine art of making bags (not war) and the Calibre 21 is the latest addition to its arsenal. Inspired by cartridge boxes and hunting bags, the boxy handbag (measuring some 21 cm across) comes with both a top handle and a long sling. Additionally, it sports a monogrammed cut-out of a handgun which doubles up as a coin purse on the front, a nice contrast to an otherwise clean grained leather bag.
Available in all of Fauré Le Page’s signature colours (Bleu Paon, Bordeaux, Marine, Noir and Vert that’s shown above), you can pick one up for yourself at their sole boutique located at 21 Rue Cambon (or just beside Chanel’s Rue Cambon flagship in Paris) for EUR860 a pop.
