In William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, Jaques famously says: “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.”
Fauré Le Page’s latest advertising campaign embraces this sentiment in a similar spirit as their collection of highly functional pieces from the Fall and Winter 2023 collection steps into the limelight. These items command the spotlight’s attention, just like actors on a stage. The performance begins on a brilliantly lit stage, where the magnificence of Fauré Le Page’s creations takes over.
As the curtain rises, the collection is unveiled, shrouded in a fresh canvas design that magnifies the iconic pattern, seamlessly harmonising with the textured allure of grained calfskin leather. The brand brings its absolute best to the forefront.
This is done with a bold “On A Large Scale” motif, with its never-done-before expansion of the classic pattern, that elevates the pieces into a realm of unmatched grandeur. The striking interplay of unprecedented hues, set against the backdrop of Mars Ochre, produces a visually stunning and hypnotic spectacle.

From firearms to fashion
Fauré Le Page is a luxury accessories and leather goods brand known for its distinctive designs and craftsmanship. The company was founded in 1717 by Louis Pigny, making it one of the oldest luxury brands in France. Known for its high-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, it began as a maker of firearms and ammunition for the French monarchy and aristocracy.
Over the years, Fauré Le Page expanded its offerings beyond firearms and began producing leather goods, including hunting bags and accessories. The brand became renowned for its craftsmanship and began catering to European nobility.
In the 20th century, Fauré Le Page faced various challenges, including declining demand for hunting-related goods and the impact of two World Wars. During this period, the company diversified its product line and focused on creating luxury leather goods, such as handbags and wallets.
In the 2000s, Fauré Le Page enjoyed a well-deserved comeback when it was acquired by Pierre-Noël Luiggi in 2008. Luiggi and designer Augustin de Buffévent reimagined the brand and its signature designs. They introduced the brand to a new generation of luxury consumers, focusing on unique patterns, materials and accessories.
