Couronne, The Eastern Luxury Leather goods Brand Crowning the West

Published on 13th, February 2014

Can an accident create history? Can a chance encounter lead to a pioneering path? Can a latent passion be reawakened by a pastime? The emergence of Couronne gives a nod in the affirmative.

Couronne, the luxury leather goods and accessories brand whose birth was a result of the fusion of passion and destiny, offers collections of handbags, small leather goods and shoes that can be best described as “timeless chic”. Made by master craftsmen using the finest leathers and exotic skins, Couronne bags and shoes embody shapes, colours and details that are timeless yet progressive, refined yet cosmopolitan and poised yet practical. Designed for the woman who is distinguished by her impeccable style, Couronne’s collections portray a new kind of exposé of the modern woman.

Couronne was created in 2009 by the South Korean-born and Los Angeles-based designer Jeong-Hey Seok whose lifelong passion has been art, design and architecture. She created the brand following an encounter with an enthralled shopper in a Department Store, who approached her to request to purchase the bag she was carrying without realizing that it was self-made. This chance encounter as well as incessant queries and requests by friends to design handbags for them, led the designer to transform her pastime into a vocation. Couronne’s emergence as a brand followed the initial path of word-of-mouth confidentiality which then grew rapidly, leading to the establishment of a flagship boutique in Seoul, the designer’s origin. Couronne which was acquired by the Kolon Industries in 2010 is currently retailed in over 46 stores worldwide.

In keeping with its originality and uncompromising high standards, Couronne’s leather goods are made of the best leathers and animal skins sourced from around world, including Italy and hand-stitched by skilled craftsmen and artisans in the brand’s own workshop just outside Seoul. Couronne, whose name means “crown” in French, indeed personifies all that is found at the summit the finest products that portray passion and destiny.
