DCEMBER is an Antwerp (Belgium) based design label founded by designer Florien Pénard and her husband Olivier.

"My inspiration stems from my walk of life. Born in the magic month of December, the love for pure materials was passed on to me from a very young age. Like the scent of wooden art objects carved by my father. Or the soft touch of the leather handbag my grandmother made herself.

Graduating from the academy of fine arts in the Netherlands, I pursued my passion for design at Kenzo and later on as lead designer at Dirk Bikkembergs.

When my kids, Zoé and Louie, started personalizing their saddle leather schoolbags, I started thinking ... “I want that too!”

A companion, that is an extension of my personality and adapts to every season and occasion".
