One of my all-time favorite accessories brand, Goyard can be described in 3 words– classic, Parisian and understated. Goyard is known for their unique and colorful chevron pattern - not to mention hand-painted stenciling — and is one of the most exclusive brands I know. Exclusive? Yes! They only have 19 boutiques worldwide, 5 of which are in the United States. Also, “Goyard does not engage in any form of e-commerce”, quoted directly from their website. Therefore, to add to your collection you have to visit an actual retail store.
United States Locations:
Barneys New York in Beverly Hills, Barneys New York in Boston, Barneys New York in NYC, Bergdorf Goodman NYC, and the country’s only freestanding Goyard shop in San Francisco’s Union Square.
Goyard takes the credit of being the first trunk designer in Paris, established in 1792, long before another well-known Parisian trunk designer, Louis Vuitton was established in 1854. They offer four distinct product lines: travel goods, a large choice of handbags and small leather goods for both men and women, special orders, and pet accessories.

Check out the wide array of hues their tote comes in. Most products they offer — including their men’s wallets and other accessories — are carried in an array of colors such as these above↑.
My Goyard card holder I purchased at the store on rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. It’s easy, simple, fashionable and feels more ‘one of a kind’ than your average designer wallet.
