BrillantDelvaux Brillant bag

1958. Architectural feats and a spark of innovation electrify Brussels, host to the World Expo, inspiring Delvaux to create the most complex, radical, and iconic bag ever made.

A star is born, the Brillant.

With the shape of a goddess, a buckle like a gem, and the posture of a queen, the Brillant shines down on its subjects, but will never outshine you.

Since 1958

Brillant Hotel Metropole

Paule Goethals, a renowned architect and former student of Henry Van de Velde (founder of La Cambre, the Belgian National School of Visual Arts) collaborated with Delvaux in 1958 to create the Brillant.

This explains the graphic lines and clean cut of this iconic bag.

An Iconic Buckle

Buckle on a Brillant bag

In the horseshoe-shaped buckle of the Brillant, one can discern an abstract letter 'D'.

Though the signature form of the Delvaux 'D' has remained unchanged since its creation, the latest editions may be crafted in materials such as rubberised metal for a modern touch.

Prestige Leathers

Reptile leathers have long been a symbol of prestige. La maison Delvaux reimagines these traditional materials each season, casting them in bold, contemporary designs with innovative finishes. Alligator leathers feature wide, square or rectangular scales that change suddenly to smaller, round scales.

For custom orders, the house offers a range of shiny alligator leather in a selection of vibrant colours.

On the Button

Leather inside the Brillant bag

Delvaux likes things done well, down to the very last button.

Buttons are sewn by hand with a fine, thin layer of leather glued in place over the button. They are then left to dry overnight and secured with a twist of thread.

Coupé Net or Moulded

It takes eight hours to assemble the sixty-four pieces that form the Brillant.

For box calf and exotic leathers, the pieces are assembled with the coupé net (cut edge) technique.

For Sellier leather, Delvaux uses a wooden mould to stitch and assemble a supple, sportier version.

A star is born,
a Brillant one
indeed.
