Contemporary French leather and bag specialist Bleu de Chauffe celebrates its workwear roots with its new Fall/Winter 2016 collection shot by French photographer Yves Mourtada.

The “Hairy" line pays tribute to the LC4 deckchair designed by famed architects Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand in 1928; a bi-material range, it comes in Charles and Eclair styles.

The brand's signature musette, a working tool bag, comes in navy, camel waxed and stonewashed khaki canvas, all available in two sizes. While postman, writer, business and plumber bags use the brands famed natural leather.

Bleu de Chauffe take a less typical approach to leather, reducing chemical use by vegetable tanning. The result is a high quality, more sustainable and naturally soft leather that patinas over time.

Bleu de Chauffe refers to the timeless blue work jacket worn by French steam engine drivers and factory workers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (and legendarily adopted by late fashion photographer Bill Cunningham). The brand’s artisanal team hand-cut, fabricate and stitch Bleu de Chauffe bags from a workshop in Aveyron, Southern France. Each bag is signed and dated by its maker.

The new collection is available to shop now via the link below.
