S.T. DUPONT: THE “TRUNK-MAKER OF KINGS”
As early as 1934, the Maison was lauded as the "Luggage-maker of Kings" by the press. From crowned heads and cinema legends to fashion icons, industrial fortunes, and political figures, all were welcomed at the Parisian headquarters by Lucien and his staff, with the care and consideration they deserved.
Among the illustrious clients of the Maison was the Duchess of Windsor, who in 1945, commissioned a custom travel trunk. Two years later, the iconic "Bogie" was born, following an order from the Hollywood actor Humphrey Bogart. That same year, S.T. Dupont manufactured the last travel trunk in its history for Princess Elizabeth of England on the occasion of her wedding to the Duke of Edinburgh.
In 1953, André Tissot Dupont envisioned for Audrey Hepburn the "Riviera", a handbag equipped with a secret drawer, further showcasing the Maison's unique blend of luxury and innovation.
Closely linked to the world of art, S.T. Dupont has engaged in numerous collaborations.
