An Exclusive Orient Express Creation




A Classic Revisited

Since its inception in 1834, Au Départ has been identified by a monogram in the shape of a three-dimensional parallelepiped, which is inspired by the floors of Pompeii. Here, it is featured in midnight blue, Orient Express's iconic colour.

The Leather

Selected exclusively from the finest Italian tanneries, Au Départ's smooth and durable calf leather is made of the highest quality.

The Canvas

A jacquard woven fabric with reflective thread.

The Manufacturing

The travel tote was designed and manufactured in an artisanal Italian workshop north of Milan.

Anatomy of the Travel Tote

With its spacious design and clean lines, the travel tote is minimalist and chic. It's roomy enough to carry any travel must-have, including clothing, sunglasses, and a notebook, while still remaining lightweight.
