Shop Update: The Return of The Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff

by

FOR THE GIRL WITH EXQUISITE TASTE — Back by popular demand, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff is finally here again! & available for Pre-Order. Over the past few months, we have been inundated with requests for our most popular shoulder bag and our tannery in France has finally produced more leather in this beautiful shade of grey, the colour of the sea on a romantically overcast day along the shores of Scotland . . .

Shop Update: The Return of The Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff

Design Notes

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

We gave the original design an update by replacing the thick bridal leather typically used with soft & luxurious leather from one of the finest tanneries in South-Western France, bringing the bag from the countryside to city streets.

We also updated the London Tan and Chestnut colours cartridge bags normally come in with a soft and ultra-chic grey, or Seacliff, and added beautiful gold details, such as the lock clasp and chain strap.

It is hard to imagine humans spending their lives in virtual reality when the experience amounts to waving your arms about in the middle of the lounge with a device the size of a house brick strapped to your face. But this is where humanity is heading, says the philosopher David Chalmers, who argues for embracing the fate. Advances in technology will deliver virtual worlds that rival and then surpass the physical realm. And with limitless, convincing experiences on tap, the material world may lose its allure, he says.

Britain’s diverse coastline, from the cliffs of Dover to the boardwalks of Brighton, will soon have a unifying element: the 2,800-mile England Coast Path. Developed in part by the governmental organization Natural England, the path aims to increase public access to the coast while also restoring landscapes, improving community connection and promoting sustainable travel. Trail segments that have opened include a 44-mile stretch in the northeast, from the River Tyne to the Northumberland coast, which is the epitome of rugged England: misty dunes, rocky headlands, wild beaches.
