Why Dita Von Teese totes around this Delvaux bag

The royally-approved brand worked with an architect to design this iconic bag

Founded in the year before the Belgians declared their national independence, the Belgium-based Delvaux brand worked closely with renowned architect Paule Goethals for its Brilliant collection. The Belgian royal family also entrusted the label as “royal warrant holders of the court of Belgium.”

The house of Delvaux is known for its use of exotic leather—alligator, lizard, ostrich, and shagreen—and its approach to design, which is modernist and pays particular attention to architectural lines, intrepid proportions, and bold shapes. Toted around by Rihanna, Dita Von Teese, and Jessica Jung, the Delvaux Brilliant Mini is an exact duplicate of the Brilliant MM Satchel, exuding the same power but in a smaller package.

Available at Homme et Femme, G/F 8 Rockwell, Makati City843-2025.
