Pin Your swinging beauty

1972. Delvaux's owner Solange Schwennicke is enjoying a horse and carriage ride on a sunny afternoon in Tunisia, when inspiration strikes as she spots the hay bag swaying around the horse's neck. 

The Pin is born, with a curvy bottom and a swinging soul.

Without fuss or inner lining, this beauty has all you need when all you need is love, or perhaps a little escapade. Together, you'll dance through life, delighted in all things from the hills of San Francisco to the gateway of Mumbai.

Since 1972

By the 1970s, although classic framed bags still had their place in the Delvaux collections, the dominant trend was towards softer, more informal tote bags that could be worn across the body.

It was at this time that the ‘D’ logo was also introduced as a design feature.
