Blue de Chauffe is the name given to the blue work jackets worn by french train conductors in the early 1900s. It went on to find itself on the back of factory workers and became general wear for anyone considered, yes, blue-collar. Well, all this feels a million miles from this smart collection of bags but the brand tell us it’s all about inspiration. Indeed, the line has a very utilitarian feel about it and whilst you may not use yours to carry your railroad workers hat, these are built to suit just about every modern task. Another brand walking that modern/classic line, their Spring Summer 2012 collection may be their best yet.
