A New Book Celebrates Delvaux’s 180-Year Heritage – 25/2/10

Lately we’ve devoted a lot of time to discussing timeless brands with strong heritages (possibly inspired by LVMH’s efforts to invest in the next generation of artisans) and Belgian brand Delvaux is one brand we must flag.

Que’est que c'est, you say?... Well, Delvaux is a stunning Belgian brand, which has a wonderful heritage, commencing in 1829. It is the ultimate luxury handbag to own when you don't want to 'scream' from the sidewalk about your chosen brand. It’s subtle and chic with a very stealth following.

We think it is a brand to watch. And clearly so do Hettie Judah and Veronique Pouillard as they have just written a book on the house’s 180-year history... Click here to view this book on Amazon.
