There is one woman in the Massip family that did not receive the recognition she deserved, probably because she wasn’t a leatherworker in our downtown Bordeaux studio. Nevertheless, Louise Massip – Maurice’s spouse from the second generation and lovingly nicknamed Louison – played an important role in the company’s development. With a strong temper and an innate sense of business, she masterfully managed our boutique close to Saint Jean train station with an iron fist in a velvet glove. When Olivier finalized two versions of his latest creations, he named them after the second and third middle names of his passed-away grandmother: Elise and Zelie. Never did he make so many prototypes of this women’s luxury satchel bag before proposing it for sale. That’s because the in-store demand for a larger soft crossbody bag was more insisting and frequent than ever, and it had to be flawless. It is with great pride that we present you the unidentical twin bags Elise – the classical version with its central snap-on hook – and Zelie – the rock and roll version with studs and perforations in the lower corners. This women’s luxury satchel bag meets all requirements, with a quick-access back zipped pocket, and a main compartment secured with a zipper that doesn’t stiffen an otherwise supple bag. The ingenious system that splits the carrying strap to interchange between crossbody and shoulder bag was used once again, allowing to swing between 111 and 71 cm useful length. Since they are sold as soon as they have been produced, anticipate a full month in production time for your DE GRIMM Elise or Zelie.
