The mini version of 'Phoebe' by Danse Lente is an elegant accordion-like bag with two compartments. Its signature handle fastenings are inspired by the spiral binding of a notebook. Both the oversized spiral and circular magnetic closure evoke a more feminine touch to this sleek yet structured design.
Known for their architectural and contemporary aesthetic, the cult London-based accessories line, Danse Lente, is inspired by the works of the makers, including Picasso, Joan Miró, Constantin Brâncuéi, and Le Corbusier. The brand was founded in 2015 by London College of Fashion graduate, Youngwon Kim, who aimed to provide the market with well designed, quality leather goods, without the steep price points. What is engrained so heavily into their identity though is a naturally playful and experimental focus, which is representative of their name - meaning “slow dance” in French.
"I hope the brand uplifts people with our bags, a bit like the feeling of dancing, but with elegance and simplicity."
