côte&ciel – Alias Leather Collection

Parisian accessory label Cote & Ciel have released their new collection of rucksacks that pool together ergonomic shapes with the practicality desired of every-day-used products. The architectural structures play the perfect building blocks to mix canvas and leather with a slightly sensual expression. Trimmings remain clean and luxurious – silver is used in underpinning that luxury design quality. The Alias collection follows Cote & Ciel’s ethos of bringing about a balance in sophisticated fabrications, technical knowhow and progressive style. The collection is based on their continued motivation of creating forms that are inspired by tradition, technology and interplay between the natural and manmade worlds. With this in mind, as technology is now so prevalent in our lives, the bags feature useful pockets and internal sleeves to store laptops and tablets as well as your other daily grooming requirements.
