With its slim profile, the Vallance briefcase by the London-based OPPERMAN brand is both elegant and sharp. Featuring one open compartment and one slim pocket on the side, the model can hold everything the modern man needs, making it one of the more desirable briefcases on the market since 2012, when the brand was founded. Last month a new version of the Vallance saw light, being our favorite edition of the briefcase till date. The so-called ‘Naturale Collection’ is made with a vegetable-tanned leather from the renowned Belgian tannery Masure, which has been operating since 1873. The leather used in the ‘Naturale Collection’ is uncolored and unfinished, meaning it is very sensitive and will develop a beautiful patina quickly. The leather will darken after a few days in the sun, and after years of use the hue will resemble a cognac color, showing amazing character one only gets from natural leather.
The OPPERMAN aesthetic is inspired by Swedish minimalism with a twist of London style. We focus on clean lines and geometric shapes to create an almost architectural frame. Functionality, simplicity and beauty are the core components of our design.
The story of the OPPERMAN brand started in 2011 when Niklas Opperman wanted to buy his brother Mattis a luxurious leather laptop folder, but most leather goods he came across were over cluttered, overpriced and were of poor leather quality. Frustrated with the options, they started to imagine how the brothers could design a collection of their own. One year and many prototypes later, the Opperman brothers introduced their self-titled brand to the public.
The philosophy behind their brand is simple: combining great design with the best materials and craftsmanship and offer it directly to you. The company is completely transparent in its production because they feel the need to know the Who, What, When, Where and How. As the brothers feel every customer has the right to exactly know where its bag comes from.
We look forward for more affordable luxury goods by OPPERMAN in the future.
