Métier is a timeless collection of luxury leather goods for lives in motion. By merging the ultimate in Italian leather craftsmanship with highly functional design, we create elegant travel solutions for modern problems.
Launched in London in April 2017, Métier was created by designer Melissa Morris to address a specific challenge she found herself facing. It struck her that while technology had revolutionised our lives- we were all on the go from morning to night more than ever before-but the inside of a bag had not evolved to keep up.
Melissa noticed that like herself, people around her had developed makeshift solutions to keep themselves organised; none of them ideal. Melissa believed at the heart of luxury design lies the customers' needs. In the same way that a car drives, but a luxury car drives more elegantly, she wanted to do the same for luxury leather goods. This meant a collection of perfectly made leather goods that eased and enhanced her clients' lives.
From there, Métier was born.
Handmade in a storied Italian atelier, every Métier product is crafted from the highest quality materials which are sourced from Italy and France. Making no compromise, each detail is meticulously perfected through many iterations to balance form and function.
Layers of leather are fashioned into unique thicknesses for each style to ensure each bag is as lightweight as it is lasting. Hardware, made from solid brass, is strong and durable, linings are made from Alcantara, a microfibre used in vintage luxury cars and designed to be lush yet resilient. Pressure points have been carefully reinforced to ensure longevity and every design has been tested in a facility in Italy which simulates 20 years of use. Pieces are pitched against wind, rain, humidity and weight to ensure they meet our exacting standards.
The resulting products are timeless, perfected, purposeful and luxurious; made to be loved for life.
Our flagship store is located in the heart of London's Mayfair at 59 South Audley Street. Its design echoes the experience of exploring a Métier bag itself, with secret drawers and shelves tucked into unexpected places. Inspired by vintage boats, the walls are lined in teaked walnut with claret leather panelling. There are hardback books in glass cabinets, chrome finishings and a bar at the back for a speedy espresso or negroni. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
