To enhance its exclusivity, each of the limited bags has the line “Tempête 50th anniversary. Limited & Exclusive Edition” handcrafted on its interior. The design is perceived as the silhouette of the Papillon.
“The Tempête Papillon cannot help but fly high.” Papillon symbolises the endless beautiful creations from Delvaux and how it spreads its wings and reaches new heights of artistry and innovation throughout the past 50 years.
Entirely handcrafted by Delvaux’s master artisans in the Brussels atelier, the Tempête Papillon is a limited edition of only 150 pieces. Made with cutting-edge technology and pioneering techniques, this bag is a piece of art as well as a state-of-the-art creation.
Evoking a Rorschach inkblot, each handbag features a unique butterfly motif, meticulously hand-painted on Italian lambskin, which has been folded over to create a mirroring effect
Five different shades of blue lacquer are used on the leather to achieve the desired depth of contrast. The manual process of creating each motif ensures that every bag is one-of-a-kind. No two butterfly designs are identical. Each bag is as unique as the stroke of an artisan’s brush.
The bag is available in the Delvaux stores around Hong Kong. Also, please look forward to the opening of Delvaux’s new flagship store at Landmark, Central in early June. Stay Tuned!
