Angèle Lancel founded Lancel in 1876. She had brains, vision and daring. She opened a shop near the brand new Opéra Garnier, Paris. She sold articles for smokers, then, very soon, decided to turn her attention to ornaments and accessories for ladies.
For its 135th anniversary, Lancel is celebrating its founder with an homage to her:
The Quintessence of French Légèreté
The silhouette of Lancel’s L’Angele was inspired by one of Lancel’s vintage handbags from the 1960s, the Le Berline as can be seen in the generous lines and the curve of the champagne-colored clasps.
Inside, a whole chapter of Lancel’s history opens up: with an ingenious mechanism inspired by the sacs a malices produced by Lancel since the 1920s… to fix upright the mirror flap, creating a vanity with which to check your makeup or spy on the world around you.

The leather is buttery soft with major champagne-colored clasps to boot! It’s the ultimate lady bag.
Made in smooth Catalonian leather treated with chestnut, mimosa and quebracho extracts, L’Angèle is available in 6 colors:
