Goyard’s Brand Book

Goyard book 05

Michael Williams has a great post entitled The Greatest Brand Book Ever Made about the incredible book recently published by Parisian publisher Devambez about Goyard and their 160 years of history. Only 233 editions were made, and they each cost a whopping €6000– available by special order.

Each book is painstakingly made by hand by the finest artisans in France and comes in its own individually numbered, fully custom Goyard case.

It’s been incredible to see this brand manage their growth so meticulously.

Fantastic design and form factor, and works great with all my iOS devices for entertainment and calls.  They come with a great hard case to keep them save in your hand luggage when you’re on the go. If you’re shopping, these are worthy for consideration.

“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”

Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.
