Léa Toni is a brand of Parisian bags and small leather goods. It was in 2013, in a workshop in the heart of the Marais and under the delicate fingers of the young designer Léa that the first bags of the brand Léa Toni take shape, one by one.
On a bag, the singular detail of a touch of iridescent makes us go back
to the 20s. An era full of fantasy and femininity that the designer loves since childhood. Léa has a strong taste for vintage, but it is always the eyes fixed on the future that she looks, her head full of new creations and new projects.
Léa, an active young woman who, in the morning, puts on her sneakers for accompany his children to school, and who at the end of the day can
put on his stilettos to attend a vernissage with friends. Even if for Léa the bag is an accessory that must be feminine, it is for her to be above all the companion of all hours, whether for the school fair, a girls' outing, a dinner in town or for a weekend in the countryside. Cybele, Camille, Stella, Noémie... as she names them, Leah imagines them as well. With a hand carried, shoulder or shoulder strap, depending on the different occasions they are addressed.
As a young contemporary woman who is at ease in her sneakers, as in her life, Léa draws for women, and young people women of today, women's and functional bags.
It is in Léa's hands that each of the bags from the Léa Toni collection comes to life , but it is accompanied since the beginning of her story by her brother Anthony, that season after season the choice of colours is made. Colors in the spirit of the times, with the current fashion trend or simply crush on the colour of a leather with a subtle hue, Anthony is the Eye that observes, looks, discovers, while Leah is the Hand who draws.
Beautiful complicity of a brother and a sister, united by the love of beautiful skin, the taste of colours and the smell of the skin since their childhood. From a generation of leatherworkers from father to son, it is indeed from their youngest age that they bathed both in this universe.
A universe that no longer has any secrets for them. It is their perfect knowledge of this craft, the many technical constraints to the realisation of a bag, and the artistic fiber of Léa, which allows them to develop the brand thus giving him all their expertise.
Léa and Anthony are committed to offering their customers the finest leathers. After many trips in search of the best, it is in Italy that stops their choice for the selection of leathers from their very first collection.
Full grain cowhide leather , selected with particular care from the best tanneries. Leah Toni leathers are quite natural, they live, and skate over time. Their light shades of leather variation, and the veins that can be guessed from time to time, are part of the very essence of a Lea Toni bag with which Lea sometimes plays in her creative process.
Italy would become almost a second home for the brand.
It is indeed in Milan on the occasion of one of their journey that the destiny makes them meet a manufacturer recognised by the biggest marks of leather goods. This one conquered by the enthusiasm and the energy of these two young brother and sister decides to accompany them to the development of Léa Toni.
A great meeting, and a collaboration that allows Léa Toni clients to be offered exceptional quality designer bags that everyone can afford.
