Julie Dupont is a new luxury women’s accessories line created by French sisters Julie and Justine Dupoint, gathering attention among accessories press and buyers. The collection uses premium leathers to create bags and small leather goods, complimented by a small range of jewellery. Julie Dupont has 10 years experience within the luxury accessories industry including positions at Christian Louboutin and renowned leather workshop Style Wyjo.
A lightning bolt provides a signature brand symbol showcased in Dupont’s prints and zip pull hardware. Silhouettes are mostly soft rounded forms, that create a relaxed luxury feel. Key shapes include a drawstring sack bag, mini holdall and zip-pocket pochette with metal strap.
Small leather goods play with proportion using over sized zips on small coin purses and classic satchel bag shapes, minimized into wallet proportions. Alongside some staple plain leather styles that emphasise form, Julie Dupont offers a youthful take on the use of exotic skins, gingham, fresh on-trend color palettes and stand-out metal detailing.
Traditional manufacturing, premium leathers and experienced craftsmanship provide a quality foundation for this bright young brand.
