Design Notes

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

In the Atelier With: August & June

We created August & June for the woman who confidently knows who she is and whimsically dreams of whom she’s still becoming–the woman writing her own story. We believe in celebrating every day, everywhere, with some sparkle–whether at a client meeting or in downward dog. We believe a stacked wrist can embolden a woman to take ownership, of her style and her life.

It takes a strong philosopher to assume control of a preposition and propel it into a foreign language. That is what Friedrich Nietzsche did with the word über.
