Shop Update: The Return of The Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff

by

FOR THE GIRL WITH EXQUISITE TASTE — Back by popular demand, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff is finally here again! & available for Pre-Order. Over the past few months, we have been inundated with requests for our most popular shoulder bag and our tannery in France has finally produced more leather in this beautiful shade of grey, the colour of the sea on a romantically overcast day along the shores of Scotland . . .

Shop Update: The Return of The Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff

Design Notes

The Saint-Germain-des-Prés shoulder bags by Belgrave Crescent were inspired by old-school English leather cartridge bags used for hunting.

We gave the original design an update by replacing the thick bridal leather typically used with soft & luxurious leather from one of the finest tanneries in South-Western France, bringing the bag from the countryside to city streets.

We also updated the London Tan and Chestnut colours cartridge bags normally come in with a soft and ultra-chic grey, or Seacliff, and added beautiful gold details, such as the lock clasp and chain strap.

Stephen Hawking once said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change” and seeing as we’re on the brink of a massive change, these words will certainly be put to the test. Things have felt in a state of flux for the past few weeks now and we’re looking forward, at the end of all of this, to a few moments of calm, for a little time away, but mostly, for fresh starts and new beginnings… One thing is for certain, now more than ever, we know that nothing can happen to us as long as we’re together. This love is forever.
