I was asked by Gérard Darel to style and make a daily life ~ 24 hours rapportage with my favorite Gérard Darel "24 Heures"bag and not just for fun but for a very special project! My bag is the Python leather "24 Heures" cuir Utah 2007! and yes the year matters! 2007 was the year I was living in New York working as a fashion trend forecaster in the heart of Manhattans fashion district. My first job just out of college in a city like New York meant that for the first time I had money to spend on all those fashion cravings like amazing shoes and yes "it bags" my very first real designer bag was a MiuMiu and this bag reminds me it!

Little story about the creation of a big bag
Creating a cult item can sometimes seem like an impossible mission. Yet when magic and desires get involved, a dream can quickly turn into reality. The first lines of the 24h's beautiful story were written to unexcpeted authors: although they had never created accessories, Darel's design offices decided to sketch the idea of this gem: light, flexible, practical and it had to be made of leather. Functionnal, it would adapt to each and every moment of the day thanks to its generous volume. With its graceful allure, it would be both enveloping and incredibly feminine, sexy when wearing it, and casually chic when sitting next to its owner. One thing leading to another, the dream bag started to take shape. Prepared to face every challenge of daily life, the 24 Heures came to life, with the whole DNA of the Darel house as it's signature. Ready to become every women's favourite companion...
I styled the Python leather with simple white blouse and trousers, Zara sandals and my new Muubaa jacket, the belt is a diy that I made out of a Rebecca Minkoff bag strap ;) Dont forget to check out the Instagram Contest to win your own 24h Bag!
