The Return of The Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Seacliff

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.

Notes from the Weekend

THIS WEEKEND we made it out to the riverside pub that is our favourite summertime place. Saturday was a warm spring-like day, so we were able to sit outside, although not for long, as it began to cool down around 4:00 pm. Before the pub, we stopped in at a patisserie that’s well-known in the area and picked up a delicious strawberry custard tart…
