Our Favorite French Accessories Brands

by Ali Postma

In the quest to dress like a Parisian, we can’t forget accessories. They’re the small but vital details that complete a look, and the French certainly know how to accessorize. We all know locals love their sneakers, and we’ve already covered French sneaker brands Veja and Pairs in Paris.

But the French are also known for their leather goods, jewelry, and love of scarves. In addition to cult handbag brand Polène, here are a few more accessories brands to help you put the finishing touch on your Parisian look.

My favorite? The Gabrielle handbag in smoked pink leather with an adjustable resin chain. All of their bags are designed and developed in Paris, the leathers selected in Italy, and the manufacturing process takes place in skilled workshops located in Florence, Alicante, and Istanbul.

Particularly drawn to raw materials, her collections feature precious or semi-precious stones, including diamonds emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and freshwater pearls. Her creations can be found internationally, especially in Scandinavian countries and the United States, but her flagship store is located in Paris’ 3rd arrondissement.

ÉPICE

ÉPICE is a Paris-based brand established by two Danish designers, Bess Nielsen and Jan Machenhauer. ÉPICE creates high-end scarves for both women and men, as well as printed bags and knitwear made in Italy, umbrellas, and espadrilles.

The identity of the brand centers around its creativity, with each unique piece considered a work of art. After carefully deciding the size of the scarves, the thread, the color, and the original patterns, each piece is woven and printed by hand in Indian workshops.

A careful selection of high-quality fabrics made from natural fibers accentuates the colorway conceived by a specialist in Denmark. While their flagship store is located in Paris, ÉPICE stores can also be found in Aix-en-Provence, Toulouse, Copenhagen, and Tokyo.

The Damas sisters are certainly a force to be reckoned with. Young Parisian designer and influencer Louise Damas, sister of Jeanne, creates beautiful handmade jewelry out of 24 carat gold plated brass.
