I love seeing nice people achieve great things. I remember the day Dexter Peart (one half of the WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie team) made his announcement and decided to go off on his own to create his own brand. About 8 years later him and his twin brother and co-founder, Byron Peart have taken this Montreal based accessories brand, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, global.

WANT had worked with J.Crew back in 2009 but they recently just launched another special collaboration, specifically for women with the retail giant. They have designed a 2 in 1 bag that goes from day to night. The day tote comes in two sizes (large and medium) and is offered in two colors (Navy and Neutral). Both these totes seamlessly transition  into clutches and I'm usually not one for the two-fer gimmicks, but in this case it really makes a lot of sense.  The collection has recently been re-stocked and now is available online and they are shipping internationally!

Here are the product details via J.Crew: Introducing our exclusive collaboration with Montreal-based WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie. The company's travel-obsessed founders believe that even everyday life can be a transformative journey, and that nothing complements that journey better than well-made, top-quality accessories, like this clutch and carryall in one. Exquisitely crafted using only the finest 100 percent certified organic Turkish cotton and sustainably produced leather, this convertible tote is as beautiful as it is practical (and it absolutely wowed at Fashion Week). Finished with a slew of useful pockets and the company's signature silver and gold zippers, it's made exclusively for J.Crew (which means you won't find this anywhere else). 8" handle drop. 18 1/2"H x 17 3/4"W x 5"D. Leather and organic cotton. Import.

I'm truly happy and excited  for these guys and am honoured to have had the chance to work with them years ago at one point in my career.  I wish them eternal success as they continue to grow and build their brand. They have persevered through tough times but have continued to stay focused on their vision and passion which has never steered them wrong in the past. Much love to you both and I'm excited to see what is next for you both! - XO
