ellen:truijen


The December days are about to start and that creates a higher demand for fine accessories. Ever since the opening of the store we are a huge fan of ellen:truijen, a nice lady from the South of the Netherlands that makes extraordinary bags and other accessories for both men and women. The great aspect of her collection is that it has a strong, sober signature and the collection carries an impressive amount of basics that return every season. Besides that Ellen keeps on surprising us twice a year with her seasonal leather and design interpretations.

The thing that we like in particular about the designs (and her characteristic leather) is that it has a lot of similarities with how we like to see denim. The Ellen Truijen bags get more and more beautiful by using it and the color of the bag constantly changes. Because of using only top notch leather qualities like goatskin or buffalo leather, the timeless pieces are considered to be a life time friend. And lastly, we experienced at Tenue de Nîmes that the purchase of an Ellen Truijen bag means often that you simply have to get yourself another one every once in a while. So be careful because these leather goods are worth another addiction.

Our favorite designs are the 48HRS and the Shopper deluxe as well as the Belly. Last week we received an additional drop that also contains of a few wallets and other leather must haves.
