Greeted at the foot of the sweeping staircase by three cherubs on plinths wearing miniature Delvaux bags the display in the salons was a delight.
Highlights included a copper leather bag and mini-bag in classic Delvaux style, an ombré snakeskin bag in grey and copper, a stunning basket weave bag with tassels, and finally a black classic with thin buckle as the only ornamentation completed some of the silhouettes.
Stripes, so fashionable this season in clothing, featured here in delicious variations. One bag, asymmetrically striped in black, white, eau de nil, and aqua, another with a Regency stripe and coiled metal handle which was ornamented with pink and pale blue jade were some examples of the trend.
The bags which grew as they inflated was surprising trick to entertain, but then the bags themselves were extraordinary pieces in their own right.
As guests strolled from room to room it was obvious that shopping was foremost in mind for many journalists and editors, and with good reason.
Alongside all the hallmark designs of Delvaux, Christine Zeller and her team have come up with some real stunners for next season.
