A surprising collaboration between the oldest candle manufacturer in the world and Parisian leather experts LaContrie, this handcrafted bag is inspired by vintage camera lens holsters. Designed to house a Cire Trudon candle, use it afterwards to carry your essentials, both day and night.
Born in 1643, a year before the coronation of the Sun King, who subsequently made them his official wax manufacturers, Cire Trudon capture scents fuelling memories of distant lands in their vegetable wax candles, housed in a signature black and gold holder. Each year, the candle makers work with different designers, houses and personalities and this Summer they have chosen to collaborate for the first time with French leather specialists laContrie. Aptly named Carrousel, this entirely hand-crafted cylindrical shoulder bag is designed to hold a Cire Trudon candle so you can carry the Roi Soleil, Ottoman, Abd El Kader and Dada candles when you travel. Inspired by vintage camera lens cases and available in a variety of colors, this leather shoulder bag is also ideal for your essentials. Carry your phone, credit card and lipstick in regal style.
Carrousel shoulder bag, available exclusively at Colette in a range of colors and leathers at your request, LaContrie x Cire Trudon, price on request.
