PHOTO COURTESY OF DELVAUX
There’s something about bags from Delvaux that consistently hit the mark in terms of quality and style. Exceptional leather materials are also a given when it comes to their classic bags such as the Brillant, evident in the supple Rodéo calf leather which takes centrestage in this season’s offering known as the Brillant Flywheel from their Fall-Winter 2021 line-up.
Further enhanced by graphic hand-stitched elements all around the seams and handles, it demonstrates the brand’s savoir-faire and luxury bag-making expertise over the years. The optic white stitching also adds a lovely contrast against the deep British Green leather (yes, it’s more of a dark forest hue and not black), forming a captivating pattern that reminds you of a leather clad steering wheel in a vintage automobile.
Available in 2 different sizes, there’s the Brillant Mini which measures 20 cm high and 16 cm wide. Complemented with natural calfskin lining and an inside pocket with a small vanity mirror, this miniature looks set on becoming your next favourite handbag from Delvaux.
The next size up would be the Brillant MM, standing tall at 29 cm by 21.5 cm, making for an excellent choice to carry to work or days when you need extra space for all your bits and bobs. The internal compartment also comes with a zippered pocket which is always great for extra security, and you can be sure that items such as an iPad Mini, continental wallets and portable chargers can all be safely tucked within.
Singapore is currently carrying both sizes of the Brillant Flywheel, priced at SGD8000 and SGD9800 for mini and the MM respectively. And since there’s currently no online store for Delvaux for our region, you can always visit the boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Department Store to view them in person.
