Following the opening of a store on London’s Sloane Street last May, Belgian luxury leather goods label Delvaux, which was founded in Brussels in 1829, inaugurated on Tuesday its first boutique in Milan.
The flagship, which carries the house’s collection of luxury bags, is located on Via Bagutta, inside the historic Palazzo Reina, a recently restored palazzo in the heart of Milan’s Golden Triangle luxury shopping district.
Combing Belgian interior design with Italian decorative elements, the store welcomes visitors with a curved hallway conceived by Saint-Gilles’ fine arts academy Van Der Kelen, which leads to a space featuring an impressive bookcase by 20th-century Italian designer Ignazio Gardella.
Inside, the store, which features lacquered walls, displays artworks, spanning from vintage pottery to sculptures by several Italian designers, including Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
Delvaux, which is the official supplier of the Belgian Royal Court since 1883, operates more than 20 stores in the world, including doors in Belgium, England, Italy, China and Japan.
