Attention favorite find! 10.03.53, an innovative and socially conscious accessories brand, is celebrating its third anniversary and treating itself to its first boutique—a hybrid concept combining a creative workshop and a dynamic retail space, fueled by the vibrant atmosphere of Belleville. Let's take a tour.
Sustainable Production for Unique Creations
In 2020, after working for Gucci, Paco Rabanne, and Isabel Marant, Luca Colosimo, a young Italian stylist, decided to launch his own brand, focusing on technique, research, and the use of innovative materials.
Three years later, 10.03.53 has already established a significant digital presence and an international network of resellers in over 25 countries, enabling them to showcase their creations in a flexible space that reflects the brand's commitment to sustainability and the circular economy.
Designed to complement the body's shape and enhance leather, 10.03.53 bags are crafted as timeless, gender-neutral objects for everyday use. Blending tradition and modernity, the range combines leather craftsmanship expertise with the choice of innovative materials such as reinforced concrete and paper. The brand also emphasizes small-batch production, thereby reducing waste and avoiding seasonal sales while highlighting the craftsmanship.
Our Summer Crushes
We were tempted to go on a shopping spree both on the website and in-store, but choices had to be made. As the name suggests, the hybrid tote bag is one of the collection's ICON. Resembling a basket, it comes in two sizes and reinvents itself season after season. For summer, we adore the combination of recycled vegetable leather in mint green with natural raffia (€460)! The small woven tote bag in cognac color (€250) is a creative gem, entirely made from scraps of leather from luxury fashion houses, assembled to create a unique graphic pattern.
The epitome of high-tech, you can't miss the baguette bag topped with a piece of high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete developed over six months by the Parisian studio of the label. It's a sharp piece inspired by Luca's love for brutalist and neoclassical design (€540). Lastly, among the flagship models, the mini calf leather briefcase lined with faux suede (€430) has all the qualities of a larger bag with its spacious design and adjustable strap.
Open from Tuesday to Saturday, 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
