Luxury leather brand Delvaux opens Hong Kong flagship store

Luxury leather goods house Delvaux has opened a Hong Kong flagship store in Tsim Sha Tsui and in celebration has produced a set of miniatures paying homage to the city.

The shop, located at the recently opened K11 Musea mall, features a handbag-shaped arched doorway to welcome customers. The venue also includes a break out space, providing a meeting point for customers and an area to share and chat as well.

The brand’s chairman and CEO Jean-Marc Loubier has stated that he worked with Italian architectural studio Vudafieri Saverino Partners to create the space. The façade of the flagship boutique took inspiration from the Palais Stoclet, a Brussels masterpiece of architecture designed by world-renowned architect Josef Hoffmann in 1905.

To mark the event the brand has also presented a miniature series entitled “Les Miniatures Hong Kong” consisting of a panda, a junk boat, and a teapot. They were handmade by professional craftsmen using a mix of techniques, including screen printing, embossing, and UV precision silk- screening. 

Founded in Brussels in 1829, Delvaux currently already maintains shops in Belgium, Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, and Beijing.

As the latest shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, the K11 Musea mall has already attracted several glitzy brands and planned events. These include the New York Museum of Modern Art setting up its own flagship store and Festival de Cannes launching an upcoming Film Week in November.
