Delvaux, iconic label of fine luxury goods, is going prep school chic by launching The Hero, a new limited edition bag. The brand revamped one of their archetypal designs, Brillant, into a dark green vinyl version stamped with 1829. Which is the year that Charles Delvaux founded the company. This makes The Hero officially a fine fusion of heritage and innovation.

Prep school chic for contemporary women

An advantage about modernizing an icon, is that you can adapt the functional details to the needs of this time. Contemporary women are always busy and on the move. That’s why The Hero comes with a two-toned strap so you can also wear it over-the-shoulder. And even though you won’t be able to put an arsenal of unnecessary belongings in your purse (as women tend to do), it’s rather spacious. Just take into account that it’s a bit transparent. So we suggest you invest in an extra canvas clutch or make-up bag to hide your more private belongings. Unless you don’t mind people seeing which tampons you use, of course.


If you want to score The Hero as we speak, we have to inform you that the bag will officially be launched this Wednesday, the 15th of February. And it will only be sold in selected boutiques. The good news is that the retail price is very affordable compared to the regular Delvaux range, for just 1100€ this limited edition is yours. More info via
