Whether you call it burgundy, oxblood, or maroon, cordovan-hued leather is perennially in style. Cordovan is a classic four-season shade that works with the modern woman’s lifestyle, looking polished in the office, elegant in the evening, and casual-chic for weekends.
Born in Hungary, founder Etienne Aigner moved to Paris in the 1930s, where he created custom luxury leather goods for Dior and Balenciaga before striking out on his own. At the height of postwar optimism in the 1950s, he launched his namesake atelier in New York City, where Etienne’s European sensibility, combined with a multifunctional approach, immediately struck a chord with American women.
