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.

I’ll begin with the story of YS Falls, a set of cascading drops and cool, clear pools set in a Jamaican rainforest. It’s in Saint Elizabeth parish, where for a few years now I’ve been taking my son on vacation. Saint Elizabeth is a beautiful part of the country, far off the beaten path; to reach it from Montego Bay or Kingston takes four or five hours on bad roads.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

It wasn’t exactly the same as always, of course, with hand sanitiser stations and social distancing, but everyone was nevertheless in good spirits, happy to finally see other people around, even if from a safe distance.
