Since 2008, Côte&Ciel have been in the midst of innovation; having collaborated with technical giants Apple and fashion designers such as Comme des Garcon. Reflected on their history and what they are currently creating, Côte&Ciel pride themselves on their use of technical knowledge and their craftsman’s aesthetic to create bags to last the journey. Simplistic designs combined with meticulous attention to detail create accessories designed to enhance the experience.
Côte&Ciel bags are produced for the traveller; whether that is an urban nomad commuting into the city or alternatively escaping from reality with little more than what’s on your back.
“Designs work in tandem with the human body, creating forms inspired by tradition, technology and the interplay between the natural and manmade worlds.”
Now for the first time Côte&Ciel greets Spring/Summer 2015 with a new collection, the Alias Leather Collection consisting of premium leather backpacks. These bags have been crafted to be resilient yet as the styles now come in butter-soft leather there is an extra added appeal of luxury. With one new style named the Ganges, which can transform from a backpack into a tote demonstrating the ability to adapt and yet remain reliable.
The Alias Leather Collection is to be released in concessions in Selfridges, Liberty and Oki-ni as well as online.
