Design Notes

Belgrave Crescent was born in the United Kingdom and from the very beginning we have been very conscious to infuse our designs with a sense of British heritage and style. Whether we are using hand-finished British leather or having our products made by skilled artisans in the Midlands — the traditional heart land of the leather industry — we strive to incorporate an element of the past and mix them with forward-thinking designs that are simple, elegant and practical.

People often ask us about our design process and how we bring our ideas to life. The Las Salinas Suede Clutch for instance started with a visit to a saddle & tack shop in the East end of London. There we discovered some large brass o-rings that are used in traditional saddlery. We knew immediately that we could create an interesting design around this traditional element.

Our designs typically evolve from sketches, to paper models, to prototypes and finally the finished product. On the way to the finished product there are many different incarnations and debates until we are satisfied with the result. Roséline and I are able to bring different elements to this process, but I think we complement each other well. She is able to bring an element of femininity and refinement while I bring an element of practicality and inventiveness.

The Las Salinas Suede Clutch is the latest in our ever evolving product line. We are excited to share with you many of our new designs in the coming months.

I have been observing Parisians for a while now and what I realize is that there is a fine line between between formal and décontracté, as they call it, and they blend it quite effortlessly »

A Charming Country Home in Scottsdale, Arizona by Oz Architects

AS YOU KNOW, since moving to the countryside, we’ve been obsessed with country farm house style, whether in the south of France or the rolling hills of Italy, and can not resist anything with wood ceiling beams and stone walls these days.

Autumn Trend: Leather Everything

EVERY YEAR, when summer fades into fall, there is an ushering in of new trends, new patterns, fabrics and styles―knits and leopard print (which, are incidentally, “in” so often, they’re considered a classic), smart suits and moody florals, athleisure (still) and denim.

My senior year of high school, I had three Instagram accounts: a public one, a private one for friends and internet friends, and a private one that was just for me. By this point, I’d had an online audience for six years or so: first for the fashion blog I started when I was 11…

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

DO YOU REMEMBER that feeling where you’ve been working toward something for so long, that once you’ve finally accomplished it, instead of feeling excited and celebratory, you’re in a bit of a haze and utterly exhausted? Well that was how things were this past weekend, but (happily) not for long, for after there was time for what actually happened to sink in a little, we began feeling a little more relaxed than we have in ages and did end up having a really wonderful weekend. We’re making plans again, and they are now not for work only, but for upcoming trips, and even for the holidays…
