Literature Meets Fashion

Mesh Chhibber and his artist friend Sofie C. Guerrero completed ‘a novel idea’ by launching out the Peau de Chagrin, a beautiful accessory that could be passed down through the generations. Their first collection, available on and consists of a single item: a vegetable-tanned leather bag made by a Swiss artisan. Each of the 100 bags comes with a copy of Honoré de Balzac’s La Peau de Chagrin from special edition Chhibber and Guerrero published themselves. Well, here you have a 19th-century Faustian tale about consuming and desiring that spoke to the designers and merged in successful novel idea where literature meets fashion.
