Maison AU – Essential Second Skin Accessories

<h3><strong>In two words...</strong></h3> <p style="text-align:center">.</p> <p><strong>Maison Au</strong>&nbsp;creates leather jewelry &amp; accessories&nbsp;for active women&nbsp;who want to express their sense of style with minimal effort.</p> <p>Comfortable, functional and perfectly fitted,&nbsp;Maison AU cuffs &amp; bracelets are handmade&nbsp;exclusively in France.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/731324/c5b8300f-b088-4487-92e8-078e27f2caa1.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>&hellip;and three attributes</strong></p> <p style="text-align:center">.</p> <p><strong>Comfortable</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Made from exceptional leathers, Maison AU products are supple, soft, fine, resistant, light, silent, neither hot nor cold to the touch.&nbsp;So comfortable, you barely know they&rsquo;re there.</p> <p><strong>Functional &nbsp;&nbsp;</strong>You&rsquo;re all you need... Thanks to the Seconde Clasp, it only takes two hands to put on and one to take it off.</p> <p><strong>Fitted</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Maison AU cuffs are shaped like a garment to fit the forearm perfectly. The gradation of sizes every 5mm ensures a custom fit.</p> <p style="text-align:center">.</p> <hr /> <h2><strong>The Collections</strong></h2> <p style="text-align:center">.</p> <p><strong>Au Grand Air</strong></p> <p>The flagship products of Maison AU, Au Grand Air cuffs are supple and light. Thanks to the windows cut in the material, they have a <strong>strong visual impact while being airy</strong> when worn.&nbsp;The straight edge finish gives them a radical, authentic and refined look.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/731325/a5559dfd-ac68-4601-b76a-975128310d55.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/728971/d9714180-8b0b-43ac-b405-4b45ecfaff46.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>.</em></p> <p><strong>Au petit Jour</strong></p> <p>With their fine one or three-turn links, Au Petit Jour bracelets are worn very naturally from morning to night. <strong>Discreet and timeless</strong>, their originality is expressed sometimes by the velvet touch of nubuck, sometimes by the versatility of their reversible nature. The gold version, hand-gilded with fine gold, is undoubtedly the most refined.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/731326/426ebe99-f133-4bd6-b1b7-f3574ea047e8.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/728963/35f62d4b-9e96-45b8-8d2e-1a8dbff6a52c.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p style="text-align:center">.</p> <p><strong>Au Z&eacute;nith 5 OR</strong></p> <p>Unique, the Au Z&eacute;nith cuff asserts its character with an assumed width and a ray of elegance in fine gold.
