Behind her demure appearance, the Parisian architect Myra Taguelmint is a remarkably determined woman. With her extensive training and wide-ranging knowledge, she has access to endless sources of inspiration. After 10 years working in architecture, and with a series of top-tier projects to her name, she decided to enter the world of fashion accessories. Confidently creating her own fashion vocabulary, Myra launched her own brand: Boudoir des Lubies.
Combining the principles of architecture with those of fashion, Myra designs box bags in a variety of shapes, making exciting changes to them each season.
Boudoir des Lubies models are essentially based on the concept of interchangeable flaps, and stand out with their unique finishes. Gold leaf decorates ostrich leather, while python skin comes in a range of inventive colours. The subtle combination of pale gold and silver adds a personal touch to the clasps and shoulder strap chains.
Each item is named after a Parisian street (Varenne, Odéon, Capucine, etc.) which, for Myra, evokes fond memories or sources of architectural inspiration.
Myra is an admirer of everything that is exceptional or rare.
Her first bag, featuring interchangeable flaps, took her
3 years to perfect. She showed the same dedication in going to Italy to find the best leather suppliers. Next, she turned her attention to wild animal skins, tracked down at farms in far-flung corners of the globe. In her constant quest for perfection, Myra only uses hand-applied colours and gilts.
And to ensure impeccable construction, she works hand in hand with a leather workshop operating under the prestigious 'Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant' label.
