Papa’s Got A Brand New...

Designer Isabelle Bosshard’s father traveled in style. When his favorite bag finally saw its last days, he went on a search for another: mission impossible.

So the Swiss native made her dad a new carryall composed of Argentinian cowhide and inspired by the nomadic spirit of Buenos Aires (a city created by immigrants and travelers).

Then she and South American partner Martin Rilo created a line of luggage (The Valija (left) & Pampa Zipper) for sophisticated wanderers everywhere to enjoy. Meet Roque.

A global map lines the interior of many of the bags (custom available) so Roque patrons truly have the world in their hands.
