Tempête

Let’s set sail together

The Tempête, inspired by a sailboat’s trapeze, was designed in the 1960s, when sailing came into vogue along the Belgian North Sea.

Fearless and chic, this statement bag is the perfect companion for a woman who doesn’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Since 1967

The Tempête, created in 1967, stands out for its elegant lines, graceful shape and unique studded clasps. Created for the Yachting Collection, it was inspired by the glamour of the coast and the romanticism of the sea. Capturing the spirit of sailing, yacht clubs and leisurely days, the Tempête’s sophistication has taken the world by storm. A bag without equal.

Studded jewellery

Two metal studs aligned in a row on either side of the Tempête allow its distinctive side claps to be fixed to the front. More than just functional, the studs and clasp are a unique decorative element of the bag. They can be left either open or closed, offering two very different attitudes and silhouettes.

It's all in the details

Along with its unique studs and the particular cut of its front flap, the Tempête is known for its refined details. Its emblematic gussets give beautiful structure to the bag, while its Arizona inner lining is soft as can be.

Elegant in all textures from canvas to precious leathers, the Tempête looks stately in Calf Souple and more easy-going in a grainy Crispy skin. Models like the Tempête PM and Pochette are made with Joy, a sophisticated calf leather that gives a fresh and light finish.

Degradé effects, contrasting edges, intricate embroidery and bright colour combinations work beautifully with the Tempête, ensuring it makes waves wherever it goes.

    To have and to hold

    The Tempête can be carried by its top handle, but for days when you need all hands on deck, it can be worn with an adjustable strap. Long or short, the strap can be placed over the shoulder or across the body for a more relaxed style. Depending on the circumstance or time of day, the Tempête can navigate your every mood.

    Pick your size

    Available in 4 different shapes, there’s a Tempête for every occasion, day or evening. The regal Tempête MM is perfect for making a statement while the Tempête PM is the ideal size for daily use. The beautifully compact Tempête Small adds style to any adventure while the Tempête Pochette is the ultimate clutch. Paired with a metal chain it transforms into a precious evening bag.
