Delvaux presents The Champion, its latest, non-leather, limited edition handbag that mixes heritage with an innovative urban attitude in surprising ways.
Crafted in the timeless silhouette of the Brillant, one of Delvaux’s most emblematic designs, the Champion features an ultra-sporty style, taking its cues from high performance athletic wear.
As well as demonstrating 190 years of savoir faire in luxury leather goods, Delvaux has also forged its reputation on combining heritage craftsmanship with high-tech materials and avant-garde techniques.
Twelve months in development, the Champion’s dynamic 3D effect is achieved by mastering a specialised thermoforming technique and assembling panels made from complex materials used in sportswear such as PVC, TPU and Lycra.
The bottom of the bag has been designed to look like the sole of a running shoe, a playful nod to athletic prowess. Delvaux’s crown can be found moulded on the bag’s front flap, while the Champion’s graphic strap is emblazoned with the Maison’s tagline – ‘From the Kingdom of Belgium’.
This vanguard handbag follows in the footsteps of the pioneering limited editions X-ray, Dark Night, Hero and Gladiator, all now collector’s items.
The Champion will be available for pre-order, and will arrive in selected Delvaux boutiques from 15th April 2019.
