The WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie Fall/Winter 2015 women’s clothing boutiques collection is a celebration of the modern woman who has designed her own life as it continuously evolves to encompass many new and diverse roles. A professional, an artist, a mother, a lover, an entrepreneur – today’s woman has the option to choose and embrace the lifestyle that empowers and supports her, as she in turn nurtures and supports her nearest and dearest. She is Mother Earth, representing the qualities we find most comforting, inspiring and strong.
This season, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart were inspired to honor today’s woman by creating a collection that respects tradition while also encouraging an exploration of things to come. Recognizing that never before has ease of mobility played such an integral role in our everyday lives, this collection further develops Byron and Dexter’s belief in hands-free simplicity for the on-the-go woman.
The Modern Woman
Every item in the collection is designed to support the modern woman with as many utilitarian considerations as possible. The collection introduces new styles such as the Mini Piper, a compact take on the popular Piper backpack which launched last season, the Portela, a sleek yet spacious wallet, and the Lenoir, an opulent fur glove perfect for the winter season. The new leather Logan and Strauss shoulder totes are the ultimate two-in-one styles; available in a multitude of colors, the cleverly-designed bags are completely reversible to reveal an alternative, playful metallic side.
Collection favorites also make an appearance, such as the cross-body City Bag and the free-spirited, edgy Demiranda, this time updated with matte and metallic leathers as well as rich fabrics and textured finishes. Throughout the collection, leathers in warm, saturated earth tones of spiced orange, burnt umber and cocoon are juxtaposed with contrasting fabrics such as rose gold metallic and rich boucle in almond and carbon.
Convertible totes, zippered wallets and utilitarian backpacks provide unquestionable versatility and ease as they seamlessly transform from day-to-night, formal-to-casual, and work-to-weekend. Leather accessories such as the Arlanda, Columbo and the new Madeline glove stylishly punctuate any ensemble–making for ideal holiday gifts–while fall’s Liberty print, Aurora, features splashes of jewel tones, lending a luxurious touch to the collection’s interiors.
This season, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie extols the virtue of the modern woman, rooted in traditions while always branching out to discover the extraordinary.
