About WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie

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.
