Until Barneys started carrying Delvaux bags a few years ago, the brand was a luxurious secret of sorts. Unless you were a fashion editor, luxury buyer, or particularly knowledgeable about Belgian leather goods, you probably didn’t come across the label. Even today, Delvaux maintains a level of enviable anonymity in a sea of It bags, excessive logos, and knockoffs. (In other words, you likely won’t see a Delvaux copycat lying on the Canal Street sidewalk.) To celebrate the brand’s distinct heritage and legacy, Delvaux commissioned Belgian-based photographer Marc Lagrange to shoot a portrait series called “Timeless Beauties” with elegant mothers and daughters, families, and close friends. From the iconic top-handle Brillant to the sculptural Tempête, each Delvaux bag is depicted as a treasured family heirloom. Lagrange began shooting here in New York, but will travel around the world to Brussels, Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. A behind-the-scenes glimpse at the project, including shots of Zani and Jeannette Gugelmann, Melia and Mirabelle Marden, and more, debuts exclusively here.
