Twin brothers Byron and Dexter Peart founded WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie to design attractive travel bags, everyday bags and accessories for fashionably modern gentlemen. Inspired by the timelessness and functionality of classic luggage, this Montreal-based company uses traditional styles to address modern-day considerations. For examples: a leather iPhone case that looks like a resurfaced, mid-century gem; the limited Edition leather DeGaulle bag, a timeless beauty in white; the sleek and super-functional cotton Kastrup backpack; and the canvas O’Hare shopper tote bag, adorned with WANT’s ubiquitous gold-and-silver zipper (its meaning: unity through contrast). As if handsomeness and utility weren’t enough, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie reflects the Peart brothers’ concern for social responsibility: the brand sources its organic cotton from Turkey and its sustainable leather from Norway, and assembles its products in Italy. Les essentials, indeed.
Summer essentials from Tod's, Bailey of Hollywood, James Perse, and more.
This is luggage for the design-obsessed gent with a taste for the finer things. WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie makes travel bags and computer cases that expertly blend modern functionality with a heaping portion of classic good looks. Made from soft, sustainable leather, these bags are crafted to last a lifetime—which is handy, since you’ll never want to give them up.
