From then his designs have gone from strength to strength, creating cult-classic bags such as the 'Muse', 'Cabas Y', 'Sac De Jour', and the 'Cassandre' tassel bag. Often seeking inspiration from beatnik style of Parisian streets, he was laregly responsible for changing the perception of the modern woman's wardrobe; creating pants, trench coats and 'le smoking' tuxedo jackets to be worn both day and night.
