Working as a freelancer designing handbags for big names can sometimes lead to the greatest ideas. This is what happened to Estelle Orilland. Trained at Esmod in the late ‘90s, the designer began her career working for some of the biggest names in the industry. Four years at Chloé (during the Phoebe Philo era), one year at Saint Laurent (under the aegis of Stefano Pilati), three years with Stella McCartney (at the time when the iconic Falabella is unveiled) as well as two and a half years at Marni (being lucky enough to work with both Consuelo Castiglioni and Francesco Risso): her CV reads like a runway schedule for Fashion Week. So, when she went solo in 2017, Estelle Orilland wasn't too worried.
Named Stée, after the designer's daughter pronunciation of her name, the handbag brand made its debut with six models, all named after her daughter and her best friends: Rosa, Ivy, Maya, Aimée, Neo and Alia. The graphic minimalist accessories are thoughtfully designed to be elegant yet practical. Available in vibrant pop colours as well as sombre shades, they feature a signature 1940-inspired gold or silver jewellery clasp.
Made in Italy from local leathers, Stée handbags combine design and quality to produce elegant and timeless pieces. Since this story cannot be complete without a last prestigious name to slip into the narrative, Estelle Orilland meanwhile continues her work as a freelance designer. Her most loyal client? Karl Lagerfeld, the fashion house for which she has been designing handbags since 2011. Did someone say expert?> View more
