Launched in fall 2022, Atelier Dast is led by a creative duo:

Victor Dast & Alexandra Harwood.


Born in the Loire Vallée, Victor Dast is a saddler leather craftsman. After attending an applied arts school in which he experimented with different mediums of expression such as drawing and painting, he joined the Compagnons du Devoir and began his Tour de France in 2016. Victor learned traditional saddlery leather craft techniques by working alongside French craftsmen, and afterwards by collaborating for French luxury brands.

Passionate about craftsmanship in all its forms, Victor is a true lover of hand precision and beautiful materials.

Victor and Oscar.


Born in Paris, Alexandra Harwood is a fashion historian and a trend forecaster. Trained in fashion studies at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University and in fashion and luxury marketing at the Institut Français de la Mode, Alexandra is a consultant in trend forecasting, strategy and artistic direction for independant luxury brands.

Convinced that Fashion and Lifestyle are a mirrors of our societies, she works actively to develop a fashion culture in France.

"Atelier Dast is a meeting point: art and craftsmanship, know-how and history, but above all between the heart and the mind. Inspired by Decorative Arts and the romantic philosophy, our collection of saddlery-leathergoods accessories is entirely handcrafted in our workshop near Paris and made from leathers tanned and purchased in the South of France. We don’t want to seek perfection but aimed to find balance in each things. This is why we hope that our accessories will bring you as much joy and sweetness as we had developing this project together.
