The polished and pretty designs of Isabelle & Sophie leather bags and accessories are perfect for those looking for a little bit of a texture-twist. The owner and designer of Isabelle & Sophie, Michelle creates gorgeous, classic pieces that compare and contrast the tactile nature of the materials chosen.The talented Michelle originates from Toronto, received her degree in Fashion Design from Ryerson University, and started Isabelle & Sophie has a side project while working in the corporate apparel design industry. Michelle began exploring leather as a medium when she was taken over by the desire to learn how to manipulate, create, and sew using materials that were neither woven nor knit. She had an eagerness to make something people would cherish and use for a long time. In Michelle's designs, leather is often paired with fabrics, solid colours with print, and smooth with texture.
“Above all, Isabelle & Sophie is an expression of a desire for well-made, distinctive designs that are fun, feminine, and don’t take themselves too seriously.”
Isabelle & Sophie’s latest fall/winter collection “Boarding School”, explores some traditional silhouettes, such as framed doctor’s bags, with experiments in woven leather textures and canvas/leather combinations.
