Low-key and seductive, Delvaux’s latest Brillant bag called xxl is the result of a collaboration with French cult fashion designer of the 1990s Jean Colonna. Flexible and infused with a gender-neutral style, this is a bag that is for both men and women.
Combining an intimate sense of luxury with a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic, l’xxl is big on versatility as well as style.
According to French designer Jean Colonna, the new bag is not an object, but “a living thing.” xxl is the inspired result of a meeting of opposites. Colonna’s cult rock and roll, androgynous style fuses with Delvaux’s craftsmanship and heritage to create a bag that is unique in its modern approach and pared-down aesthetic.
Adorned with a purely ornamental buckle, it has two handles and a striped cotton canvas lining, screen-printed with Delvaux’s signature crown logo. Its malleable form, two detachable pouches and considerable size give it a big presence, along with a customizable exterior tag containing a polished steel mirror for an added touch of luxury.
l’xxl is made of Dream leather, a hide that is specific to DELVAUX. Extremely soft and sensuous, it has a velvety feel that gives the bag its exceptionally supple shape. A high-quality, rawhide-like leather, it ages beautifully, taking on a characterful patina over time. Its natural variations make every bag different and totally unique.
