From the Maison Delvaux:
“1958. Architectural feats and a spark of innovation electrify Brussels, host to the World Expo, inspiring Delvaux to create the most complex, radical, and iconic bag ever made. With the shape of a goddess, a buckle like a gem, and the posture of a queen, the Brillant shines down on its subjects, but will never outshine you….Made of sixty-four separate leather and metallic pieces, the Brillant requires exceptional skill and precision to create. It takes more than 8 hours of work to piece together.”
This stylish bag is crafted of grained calfskin leather in black. The bag features a leather top handle, an optional shoulder strap and gold tone hardware, including a small D charm.
The top flap opens with a leather strap closure to a beige smooth leather interior. It has one main compartment with one small zip pocket. A lobster clasp keychain and small pen pocket also in the interior.
This is a chic bag, ideal for everyday use with the sophisticated catchy style only from Delvaux!
Dimensions: 29cm x 14cm x 22cm. Handle drop: 13cm, strap drop: 50cm.
Very good vintage condition (8.5/10). The condition is standard with a loved vintage bag, with wear but kept in good condition. It has just returned from the spa, where a professional luxury house sellier has refurbished the bag (polished the outer, resealed the edges). There is a 5cm horizontal scratch on the front and a series of small vertical scratches on the back corner (see photo details). There is a slight water stain on the bottom – not seen when worn. Slight hairline scratching on the hardware and some small black marks on the interior (see photo details). With Delvaux dustbag. No box.
