Timeless, simple, functional…
Yvonne Koné loves the simplicity of single moments. Inspired by her everyday life in Copenhagen, the accessories made since 2011 by this Danish designer are timeless and functional. The beauty of materials she uses and the wrinkles formed on a leather bag in its everyday use, are her sources of inspiration. Generally unisex, her bags are made of suede, calfskin or lambskin leather and are entirely produced in Denmark. The shades vary from the brown of the ground and woods or dust grey to coal-black.

All the materials and components, which come from France, Belgium or Italy, are applied on basic shapes such as Richelieu and derby.
