TO DISCUSS DELVAUX
 is to discuss Belgium. Charles Delvaux made his first trunk luggage in 1829, a year before the founding of Belgium as a nation. And as Belgium grew, Delvaux became intertwined with the nation’s identity, prospering through political and industrial revolutions, and surviving through colonialism, migration and war. “It’s really Belgo Belge, such a strong Belgian identity,” says Belgian fashion icon Didier Vervaeren.

In 2011, the brothers through their investment company Fung Brands Limited, acquired a controlling stake in the company from the Schwennicke family who had run Delvaux for the past 80 years. It was a much-needed partnership to help renew Delvaux’s image on the global stage and to highlight the house’s atelier, which
