The brand, The designer
The brand UTMON ES POUR PARIS is founded in 2017, created by Erzsébet Wagner who has always been in love with fashion and craftsmanship. She is inspired by the city of love, fashion, and grace, Paris. An open mind, a talent, and a great eye for details in the fashion let her start her own fresh and timeless collection which is combining her unique designs and ideas with high-quality materials and German craftsmanship. That’s what Utmon Es Pour Paris is, a unique, practical piece for everyone who enjoys delicacy and finesse. Utmon Es Pour Pairs is a sophisticated and new mix that brings a uniqueness to its rich but at the same time minimal designs. The brand is all about courage, passion, and strength of character.
Utmon es pour Paris is an interpretation of Tout mon esprit pour Paris – the inspiration behind the brand. Erzsébet I. Wagner arrived in the city of love at the age of 19 and found in it a place that perfectly reflected something she had always dreamed of: ‘beauty, elegance, diversity.’ She stayed on the Seine for a few years and was mesmerised by Parisian women – women who work a great deal, go out often, enjoy each breath, and always look incredibly nonchalant and elegant at the same time. Each design by Utmon es pour Paris is an homage to Parisian women and their incomparable flair – combined with the precision and durability of German craftsmanship.
Wagner still chooses each leather herself; manufacture takes place exclusively in Germany in a traditional factory that is among the best in the country. In addition to the highest quality, Utmon es pour Paris places particular value on sustainability. In accordance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and in cooperation with the Internationaler Reptilleder Verband (IRV), the origin of all varieties of leather can be seamlessly tracked to ensure that no animals living in the wild are endangered. For founder Erzsébet I. Wagner, social commitment is also one of the brand’s fundamental values: a partnership exists with ‘PLAN International’. Each product supports the work of this renowned child welfare organisation and therefore, ultimately, so does each Utmon es pour Paris' customer.

ELEGANT ORGANIZATIONAL TALENT: Utmon es pour Paris unites luxury, timeless elegance and organization with its Switchbag. The pochettes coordinate well with the interior of an elegant tote bag or a simple shopper and, as a clutch, rival the best designer models. The exterior design is thus as timeless as it is elegant: a narrow trapezoidal shape with a minimalistic magnetic closure; side-on, the lines form a unique ‘heart shape’. The leather moulds itself into the implied heart – a visual homage by Erzsébet I. Wagner to her design, which is a true affair of the heart for her. Designed in Germany, all bags and accessories are elaborately handcrafted in high-quality materials both to meet the highest standards and also to keep them looking good for a long time. MINIMALISM IN PERFECTION: the geometrical trapezoidal form, the subtle magnet fastener, the decent outside pocket, plainly sewed – UTMON ES POUR PARIS model renounces superfluous details, in favour of a clear, high quality. The Switchbag is an all-rounder – just like its owner. It is designed for women who are always on the move, who fulfil countless roles at once, have a lot on their to-do list and just as much in their bags, but who do not wish to waste any time packing up all their equipment whenever they move from one place to the next.
