Our favorite Belgian bag maker has done it again—and this time with a fantastical medieval twist…
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Belgium, just in time for the holiday season, a mythical tale was crafted from leather and stitching. As Delvaux puts it, the Belgian brand has created a couture collection that is “a new chapter in the saga of a chivalrous, baroque, and fantastical universe that was hinted at in the Autumn-Winter 2017/2018 collection.”
Delving deeper into this story, Delvaux has crafted four beguiling handbags inspired by different background myths. Through craftsmanship and elegant planning, the handbags transport us to a magical realm reminiscent of the mythical series Game of Thrones. Take an exclusive, behind-the-curtain look into the four branches of the collection below—replete with narrative tales and videos. We can’t wait to hear what you think of this exclusive, singularly unique collection.
The intricate flowers dipped in black of this Black Beauty are meant to bewitch, evoking the “ravishing black heart of an enchantress.”
With hardware reminiscent of both a sun and a crown, the Golden Glory bag embodies regality, optimism, and excellence.
Is it just us, or does this Iron Shield bag bear a striking resemblance to the Iron Throne—the Game of Thrones throne that embodies the monarchy that rules the Seven Kingdoms?
In a color perfectly suited for female rule, Delvaux’s divine purple Queen’s Desire bag is fit for a queen. Carry this, and you may be among the Game of Thrones likes of Daenerys Targaryen or Margaery Tyrell.
Exclusive: The Making of the Haute Bags
We love this part since we only rarely get the chance to witness the painstaking craftsmanship that goes into the making of exquisite, detailed bags. To PurseBop, anything that lets us peer behind the curtain is thrilling. Explore the making of each of the four bags below in video, interspersed with photographs of the process for a full insider’s look into the Delvaux studio.
Now that you’ve seen every nook and cranny of Delvaux’s couture collection, what do you think? Are you bewitched, or do you find it a bit “out there” for your liking? Would you carry the bags yourself—and if not, do you still appreciate the tales behind their craftsmanship? And what do you think of the Game of Thrones inspiration?
