You’ll find Parisian leather designer Florian Denicourt’s bags and accessories in high-end department stores like Le Bon Marché in Paris and Liberty’s in London, but this tiny boutique on rue Charlot is the official HQ. Here Denicourt’s men’s and women’s bags are laid out like chic bonbons on the shelves, each model sporting different minimalist forms and trimmings and costing around 500€. It might sound a lot, but this is French-made, couture leatherwork; and smaller models, like the ‘pochette’ range (big enough for an iPad), start at an accessible 125€. Particularly cool are the men’s shoes – especially the brightly coloured, hand-sewn vintage-style Tribeca Derbys (340€). They’re dapper, leather soled and very Fred Astaire.
