Witty, whimsical and one of a kind
DELVAUX presents the Magritte Collection, a playful collection that reaffirms la Maison’s commitment to the arts and its unique partnership with the Magritte Foundation. Featuring René Magritte’s unique oeuvre in its creations, it is suffused with surrealist spirit, trompe l’oeil effects and unexpected, humorous twists. A heartfelt homage to one of Belgium’s greatest artists.
Ciel: heaven or sky?
The emblematic ‘Ceci n’est pas un DELVAUX’ Brillant, makes a real impact in Ciel, a new special sky blue. The Tempête and Brillant also take on a Magritte twist with a beautiful lining depicting the artist’s iconic clouds crossing a serene Belgian sky. The original effect is made complete with white raw edges on the frame and an Ivory buckle.
When nothing is as it seems
The Magritte Collection comes with a wide range of functional and witty small leather goods, from playful pochettes and travel wallets to enigmatic charms. Making use of the ‘trompe l’oeil’ effect much favoured by Magritte, they can reveal and conceal symbols such as doves and bowler hats, depending on how they are worn.
Fun and chic they come in classic colour variations including Noir, Navy, Ivory, Ciel and Nude.
Everything we see hides another thing
Unique to the men’s collection are handles shaped like a bowler hat and a specially conceived soft lining. Printed with Magritte’s Golconda, his well-known painting of floating men dressed in suits and bowler hats, reinterpreted in shades of grey and Ivory.
Travel ready with the D-off
The D-off is for when work ends and fun begins, or vice-versa. A practical weekender bag, its size makes it the perfect piece for a city trip or travels further afield. Casual yet elegant, it has soft grips on the handles, an adjustable shoulder strap and a big outer pocket ideal for travel tickets and documents. The keyhole detail on the front flap is a nod to Magritte’s painting Le Sourire du Diable, while the inside has a handy double pocket and an exquisite Golconda lining. Available in Navy-Noir and Ivory-Noir the casual-chic D-off is always ready to take off.
The Magritte Collection is available in all DELVAUX boutiques and authorised retailers.
