talking luxury – la maison goyard

Goyard, Orlando Bloom

Goyard, established in Paris in 1853 has over time become one of the most famous luxury leather goods brands not only in France but also worldwide with their stylish chevron motif and emphasis on detail, executed entirely by hand. Whether it be a wallet, like the one Orlando Bloom was spotted with a few days ago (in the picture above) or a luggage trunk, each Goyard piece is unique. The brand also creates custom-made pieces and special orders, such as a trunk designed to carry a polo player’s equipment, or a holder for perfumes, cigars and even a iPhone 4 case priced at around $900 taking anything from 4 to 8 months to complete. As a luxury malletier, each trunk is numbered and bears a reference label with the name of the worker handwritten inside. Goyard does not create seasonal limited edition pieces, however did reintroduce a range of pieces in Pink, a color which is not part of their regular offer, as a once off run. A very exclusive brand, Goyard do not advertise at all, but rely on word of mouth from their customers which include the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Kim kardashian, Joshua Jackson and Karl Lagerfeld to name a few. With prices ranging from $2000 for a handbag to over $50 000 for a large trunk, it may be one of the most expensive brands in the world, but definitely worth the craftsmanship and luxury.
