A new French accessories designer, Julie Dupont, is one to keep under the radar. This luxury women’s handbags and accessories line created by the sister team: Julie and Justine Dupont, has been gaining a lot of buzz. The collection is unique featuring a range of bags from drawstring sacks, colorful shoulder bags, to coin purses with oversized zipper pulls and wrist-wearing “dance money” purses. Dupont also features a small line of beaded bracelets and leather wristbands. Made of premium leather with soft, round-shaped silhouettes, on-trend color palette of leather, and faux animal prints/skins. The bags are debossed with the signature logo and complete with a gold lightening bolt zipper pull. Julie’s background in the industry consists of 10 years working for renowned accessories design house, Christian Louboutin and leather workshop Style Wyjo. The Dupont collection gives me impressions of Betsy Johnson funk with a more traditional, conservative Cole Haan sleek design. A traditional meets funky collection. Hopefully we will start to see more of Dupont bags here in the near future.
