Sneakers that can head from the boardwalk to the beach, boutique to the bar.
Design team and twins Byron and Dexter Peart know that travelling can be a chore—airport check-in, security, compromised cabin leg room. The Ottawa natives created Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, a line of voyageur bags and accessories, in 2006, and this fall, the duo added an accessories collection.
HOLIDAY WISH LIST: Byron and Dexter Peart, the Montreal brothers behind wanderlust-inspired line Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, are on a roll.

Enter identical twins Byron and Dexter Peart.
