Designed to simplify your life
HOW IT STARTED
The best stories have sometimes the most unexpected beginnings – an afternoon meal between friends, a good laugh at Andy’s expense for his bag spilled drink incident and our admiration to late Steve Jobs visionary spirit have ignited a passion to do revolutionary products. Naively, with only 500$ gathered on the spot and no background in mode, we - Patrice, Andy & two other associates - decided to tackle the big fashion industry.
After many failed attempts, some friends left. Patrice and Andy decided to pursue the adventure. We were hungry for multi-purpose fashion accessories that can adapt seamlessly between our work and life’s adventures. We wouldn’t stop until we have created something that our friends would love.
Almost 2 years later, we are proud to propose our first line of products – designed to be a symbol of versatility & resilience – two great traits that have helped us tackle life’s endless possibilities and challenges.
At its very core, Classic & Courtois is an innovative brand for women and men - with deep care for practical fashion products that are crafted with integrity and leveraged from eco-friendly and finesse material. With our background in engineering and design, we rethink the anatomy of fashion accessories to deliver engineered solutions that are more in line with today’s fast-paced and on-the-go lifestyle.
We specialize in simplifying your life through well-thought wallets, bags, luggages, and accessories. Our products offer smart and modern solutions that enable people to embrace life’s possibilities with courtesy, respect and resilience.
WHY THE NAME CLASSIC & COURTOIS
Classic, English term, stems from our mission to re-engineer the anatomy of traditional fashion goods while maintaining their iconic classic appearance. Courtois, French term, reflects our vision of a society made of people who care about courtesy and respect for each other.
We're best friends Patrice Giordani & Andy Pierre graduated from Polytechnique Montreal and in 2017 we run our first successful Kickstarter. And that was the beginning of Classic & Courtois.
With our respective backgrounds in design and business, we set out to create a new standard for fashion accessories that let you do more with less.
We never settle and we are determined to keep challenging the status quo in the fashion industry from top to bottom.
