A collection of gold handbags and clutches, replete with brass details, has been conceived and produced by Delvaux for its end-of-year collection, Poussière d’étoiles. Inspired Gustav Klimt, the Austrian artist’s tiled effect is emulated using gold and black alligator and calf leather with brass hardware components.

The multi-faceted brass is polished and galvansied in a colour bath, giving a range of colour and subtle depth to the geometric stars and triangles. A gold metal sheet is applied to red-tinted alligator leather giving a dense colour effect. Inside, the bags are constructed from gold tinted lambskin in numerous meticulous steps.

The precision and craftsmanship that goes into creating these exceptional Delvaux bags can be seen in the behind-the-scenes video.
