It is not uncommon to hear people make comparisons between products and cars. But when we read on the internet that the bags of Cote&Ciel were being talked of as “the Saab’s of the backpack world”, at first we failed to understand the connection between the two.
An explanation: Saab’s, which are sadly no longer in production, were always the automobiles of choice for creatives, designers and architects who loved their functionality, style and efficiency. The same three adjectives could also be used to describe the products of Cote&Ciel. Originally starting life as an Apple commissioned special product team, Cote&Ciel craft exceptionally well made and considered luggage solutions.
The bags are heavily design orientated but fortunately this direction does not compromise on usability; in fact it only enhances it. Every bit of space and fabric has been placed to improve the structure, create more storage options or make it easier to access your valuables. The bags themselves are things of beauty, not conforming to the traditional shapes of rucksacks. Sweeping curves and asymmetric lines combine with rugged, hardwearing materials to provide a design led bag that is aesthetically stunning.
