Delvaux 1967 Tempête MM

September 22, 2010

This is not from Hermès. It is also not inspired by, nor is it a copy of anything else. This is the 1967 Tempête MM from Delvaux, one of the few truly luxurious brands I’ve yet to cover on this blog. Started in 1829, the Belgian house is still owned today by those descended from the original founder.

Bags and accessories are made today in Belgium, France and Vietnam, and since its inception in the 1800s it has executed over 2500 different designs for men and women. One of its house icons is the Delvaux 1967 Tempête MM (EUR2360), an elegant (even handsome) structured handbag that can be carried in the crook of the arm or in the hand.

Another classic is the Delvaux Brillant MM (EUR2290), a 28 cm by 22 cm handbag that is also favoured by society ladies. There are no monograms, or huge discs with the logo hanging from the side on both pieces, just quiet confidence in the heritage and craftsmanship in everything it articulates.

What other brands lust for, they’ve already got. Get it online (or check out what else they have). And yes, Delvaux now ships internationally as well.

BBoy, have you seen it? Is the lock functional on the bag? Or just decoration? (FB)
