As a nod to perhaps one of the most spoiled dogs in history, Goyard has launched a new tote – the Villette! The painted chevron toile tote with canvas interior and two leather handles features Hulot, the French bulldog that once belonged to Edmond Goyard, and was the inspiration for Goyard’s “Le Chic du chien” pet accessories line. Hulot has been immortalized in Goyard advertisements dating back to the early 1900s, and now he appears here, on this new tote, sitting nicely on the train and reading his favorite livre d’histore!

The shape of the Villette is based on the tote Méditerranée, launched originally by Goyard in 2015 (more about that tote here: The Villette measures approximately 23 1/2”l x 15 3/8”h x 9 ¼”d and comes in four colorways: navy, yellow, green, and red.

Rumor has it that pricing includes your choice of 2-3 initials or numbers painted on the cover of Hulot’s book.

Current pricing is:
264,000 Yen
1760 Euros

The above information is my original writing, using all of the information I have about the tote, and information and photos from the following sources:, — c18027

Please feel free to add your thoughts and additional information that you may have about the Goyard Villette!
