The concept:

"The idea is as simple as a nonchalant unconscious gesture, the accessory minimalist and elegant.

Marie-Laurence Stévigny, designer of good use, creator of good sense, has conceived her unisex and

modular Pockets as dissociable, timeless and interchangeable pockets. The hidden element of the

garment becomes an ornament, an outfit enhancer.

They are worn visibly and within easy reach or protected under the jacket, but they are not bought

under the cloak: made by the most expert craftsmen of full grain leathers and beautiful materials in

Spain and Italy, they are chosen as they will be loved; durably and with care.

The textures adapt to the seasons, the colors coordinate with all intentions, with a natural palette as a

base. Marie-Laurence Stévigny favors beautiful natural leathers and up cycled fabrics, preserved

know-how, fluid uses, like a full grain leather nourished by patience. And because they are intrinsically

intimate, Pockets can now be personalized with the initials of those who already wear them.

Marie-Laurence Stévigny is a Belgian but international designer who values the notion of discreet

luxury. Pockets are the first bags in the history of fashion, but also the first "hiding places" that brought

emancipation to women who only had what society wanted to give them. Symbols of freedom, Pockets

free the movement, lighten the silhouette, emphasize the moment, and to pocket the difference."

Elisabeth Clauss Fashion journalist.

As simplicity is at the core of the creative design approach Marie-Laurence Stévigny is dedicated to providing you with high-quality, timeless, practical, handcrafted lightweight leather goods and designed to last.

Why the pocket?

Because Pockets are the origin of the first bags in the history of Fashion as Arte TV explains in this documentary. Because it's a concept that sticks to men and women’s skin in the era of mobility. Because one always needs to have a pocket of reach. Because as a design Marie-Laurence Stévigny focus her creative vision on the creation of a multiple single-user products in the dematerialization. Because only the essentials are carried away; you move more lightly. Because with your hands-free: you move more freely, lightly, and safely. Because Pockets are a new vision of genderless leather accessories. Because as Yves Saint-Laurent simply said: "You put your hands in your pockets and you have the look”.
