Esteemed luggage manufacturer Goyard has been in business on the rue Saint-Honoré since 1853. Window displays of colorful totes catch the eyes of people passing by this brown storefront, marked with malletier (trunk maker). Inside, the warmly lit wood shelves are stocked with an array of classic hand luggage and steamer trunks, as well as more modern (and highly coveted) laptop cases, wallets, and totes—all with the signature chevron design. Goyard has had many fans through the years, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and this family business has been praised for creating durable, chic leather products.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
