This charmer owes its distinctive clasp to the Cobalt bag of 1969, and its firmly modern vibe to its straight and minimalist lines. You might even hear it whisper 'less is more' if you listen closely.
Simple by name, devoted by nature, the Simplissime loves to carry your laptop, enhance your look, or take over for your overnight bag. Isn´t it simply marvellous?
The Simplissime is inspired by the stylish front fastening of the Cobalt which was designed in 1969.
With its undyed leather, its shoulder strap, and unisex styling, it hints at the influence of the social movements of the era, and the relaxed fashions that came with the times.
A master feature of the Simplissime is its water drop shape that defines the sides of the bag. This characteristic form is achieved through splitting and shaving.
The aim of splitting is to obtain pieces of leather that are of the precise required thickness for assembling the product. Shaving consists of thinning the edge of the leather for a perfect finish.
The 1960s saw a move away from elaborate, decorative metal fastenings, towards stronger, boxier shapes for handbags, reflecting the independence of their owners.
The inner lining of the Simplissime is made of Arizona leather.
This full, fine-grain calf leather offers a buttery and silky touch. The signature nude colour assures an easy interior visibility.
