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.

  • Regarding the Las Salinas suede clutch.
    After my husband died, I didn’t feel like going shopping , alone in a huge mall somewhere .. so after a while, I began browsing shopping online.
    I always used Sephora, now I was looking at shops for shoes and everything else.
    I buy all my candles now from a store that is where I am currently living (Trapp Candles) and I still have fun shopping online for makeup and perfume with Sephora… they send surprise freebies that I like too.
    So anyway- I found a clutch while browsing online, Coach .. an amazing bag that I am getting very used to after all these years of huge heavy bags hanging off my shoulder.
    This bag is on my wish list now 🙂
