French Flair - Lancel's colours for summer 2012

Lancel's take on the bright colour themes that are such an important part of trends this season is superbly sophisticated and adroitly versatile. The French Flair totes have become recognized classics, and they are now available in a reversible version so that you can choose, for example, between a chic pastel green and a sunny yellow, with subtle differences in the surfaces and materials as well. Textured leather on one side, nubuck on the other. In addition, the Lancel charm is at the end of a chain attached to the handle hardware.

We loved the limited edition French Flair created specially for the opening of Lancel's new concept store in Shanghai.
