Born in an era of legendary travelers, great explorations and huge development of rail transport, the brand originally produced exclusively luggage and travel items. Au Départ literally means "at the start".
In 2019 Au Départ is reborn to create a new chapter in its history
All trunks feature the brand’s historical monogram, created using the original method of printing on coated cotton. There’s also a jacquard motif made using reflective threads that have a glow-in-the-dark feature. The same techniques are used across the brand’s bag line, where the focus is mainly on classic, timeless styles, from chic top-handle designs to reversible canvas satchels and large totes for travel, all based on archival styles.
