The pursuit of modern design and practicality in a bag
L/UNIFORM is a French bag brand founded in 2014 by founder Jeanne Signor. One day, Jeanne was enjoying her vacation until she had a difficult time packing her luggage into bags of different sizes and shapes. To enable smarter mobility, she thought, “If you don’t have an ideal bag that is practical, you have to make it yourself.” This instance became the spurring moment that launched her to create her own brand. With travel in mind at the core of the brand, the lineup of products range from suit cases and travel bags to passport and accessory cases.

 

As a designer and a mother of three children, she sought products that had everyday practicality. “Busy women who work while raising children must do all their work efficiently in a well-organized and comfortable environment. The more intricate the items in the environment, the more important they become.” All L/UNIFORM bags are carefully considered in their development to be versatile items that can be used in different situations regardless of gender or age. The unique lineup of bags is created for various situations such as commuting to school or work, travel bags of various sizes depending on the duration of travel, and pouches for storing items.

All L/UNIFORM bags are created by artisans in Jeanne’s hometown of Carcassonne in the south of France. The bags are designed to be sophisticated and pristine, composed with high quality canvas and leather. “L/UNIFORM products are light and durable. The fibers are yarn-dyed though a special process in accordance with European environmental protection standards. It is a material that is both water repellent and resistant to dirt and scratches. ” A major feature of the brand is their customization service which allows customers to personalize their bags in different colors with different letter prints. Fabric colors and piping details can be customized to be any combination of colors and bags themselves can be adorned with initials and names. “Ordinary colors like black or brown can get boring, so I like to enjoy a wide range of colors.

“This service is currently available at the new Marunouchi flagship store that was opened this past April. If customers decide to personalize the finer details of the bag, their bag will arrive 2-3 months after ordering, but can receive their bag on the spot if initials or names are added to ready-made products available at the store. The store is equipped with a touch panel that simulates your custom product as you change fabrics and parts, making it easy to visualize the final product. While L/UNIFORM has many travel-specific items, Jeanne is also known as a travel enthusiast in her personal life as well. “For me, ‘travel’ means being far away from home or the norm, and taking time to reflect upon it.” Her secret to being energetic at all time is this trip away from her daily flow of life. The L/UNIFORM collection reflects the designer’s love for travel and is made to be a bag for all travel enthusiasts.

Duffle bag

Originally, duffle bags were used by sailors to store their hammocks. Once the ships arrived on shore, sailors would carry their clothes and luggage in these bags. Inspired by these origins, L/UNIFORM’s duffle bag has a rope closure that shuts the mouth of the bag when pulled. A carry handle is also attached to the body of the bag, which originates from early designs of duffle bags that would allow sailors to show off their muscles when carrying their bags. This kind of attention to context is L/UNIFORM-esque in referencing history in a fashionable way.
