As I rushed out of Barneys, this bag in the case display caught my eye and made me stop and take a closer look. Plus, this is a new brand for me and I’m always looking for different designers to cover. Delvaux is a Belgium brand that has been around since 1829 and this Brilliant MM was their first bag! The quality is old school in its attention to detail and craftsmanship, there is definite pride that you can sense just by touching and feeling the bag. Now that these ladylike bags from the 60’s are so big, they are getting the attention of stores like Barneys (and blogs like Bag Snob!). That was an era where women have one good bag and they use it until it is worn out (or their next birthday!) but by the looks of the leather and stitching, this will never get destroyed, it will only get better with age. The price reflects the longevity you will get from it, € 2540 ($3230 US) at Delvaux online or at Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave.
