The house of Delvaux has been around since the beginning of Belgium – actually, they beat Belgium by a year. A look into their long standing history and beliefs reveal why this brand is well loved by both men and women all over the world.

187 years ago, Charles Delvaux’s handcrafted trunks in his studio-shop window was admired by connoisseurs, most notably the royal family of Belgium. The leather goods house expanded its range and was also given the title of supplier to the court.

Recently last year, they opened a store in Singapore, the first in Asia. Under the lead of artistic director, Christina Zeller, the brand has gone from overly traditional to something with a good balance between the past and unconventional modernity. The company believes in understated pieces, to be a quiet bag that isn’t in high demand from the masses.

This season, the collection showcases a reinterpretation of bags from their archive of 3000 over designs. Fresh and refined, the series of bags, are made from a range of high gloss leather, to exotic alligator skins and wild boar furs.
