My first Lancel

A partner for her first forays into fashion, her first late nights, the Nine bag goes everywhere. With its pure lines, the Nine is the ideal guardian angel for a generation of girls with impeccable taste. Free, always on the go and ultra-connected, they insist on style, great fashion and excellence. Lovers of beautiful accessories and sensitive to items that strengthen their identity, these ever-on-the-move, cosmopolitan young ladies see themselves reflected in the Nine. It’s the first bag that really matters.
Nine is the heir to Elsa, Lancel’s iconic bucket bag that soared to the top in the 80s. This same happy, urban feel is revisited in the identical rings that connect the strap to the body of the bag.
Nine is available in three versions—a saddle bag with the feel of a satchel, a rectangular zippered clutch that can be worn as a shoulder bag and a mini portfolio bag—and is all about pure, crisp lines and ingenious, functional design. Some love it for its confident minimalism, others for its lighthearted signature metal work, still others because they can easily slip in their portable computers.
Nine is the key that opens the door to Lancel. All the hallmarks of excellence are present and accounted for—the House’s emblematic red adorning the beautiful iguana leather, the cross-hatch topstitching and the edges dyed in contrasting colors for a bag with a smart, clean look. The line is also enhanced with high-gloss calfskin tanned in Italy, a quality leather whose suppleness and strength accounts for it success and long life. The silver-finish metal work is inspired by the charms girls love to collect: a fun dice cube inscribed with Lancel letters, a maxi-sized L conceived like a logo and a leather pompom, all twirling playfully as she walks down the street.
Nine has a sense of practicality. The closures are secured with zippers or magnets for peace of mind. Multiple exterior and interior pockets make it easy for her to organize her life—and her secrets—in an instant. And the straps are adjustable to suit different body types and different moods.
To complete the line, Lancel is offering a range of small leather goods that harmonize perfectly with the Nine: a case with a flap cover, a mini-wallet and a rectangular case, each sporting a set of charms. Along the special edition in Lancel red, the collection also comes in black, navy blue, cognac and sky blue.
With Nine, style is on the move!
