You’ve heard of Hermès, Vuitton, Prada—but how about Delvaux?
Having weathered the recession and the blingy fashion bag craze of the late Nineties, this luxury Belgian leather goods brand is expanding outside its home turf. A family-owned house that claims to be the world’s oldest leather goods company, founded in 1829 as a maker of trunks and travel goods has 16 stores across Belgium, and recently began establishing exclusive partnerships with world-class retailers—I.T. in China, Maria Luisa in Hong Kong, 10 Corso Como Seoul in Korea and Barneys New York in the U.S. Deals with Le Bon Marché in Paris and 10 Corso Como in Milan are set for fall, and more flagships in key cities are in the works, too.
