Delvaux PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Delvaux free pdf For over 180 years, the output of the Belgian luxury goods house Delvaux has met the needs of a clientele living through times of dramatic change and movement. Founded in an era when travel was largely horse-drawn, the company has survived through revolutions and wars, and adapted to the requirements of railways and ocean liners, bicycles, cars and jets. This book follows Delvaux from the manufacture of travel goods for the local nobility in the 19th century, through the rise of the modern handbag in the 20th century, to the company's vision of a new kind of elegance under its artistic director Veronique Branquinho. The exhibition 'Delvaux. 180 years of Belgian Luxury' runs from Thursday September 17th 2009 till Sunday February 22nd 2010 in the Antwerp Fashion Museum. This book is the official catalogue and gives a splendid overview of fashion and the history of this amazing fashion house.
