Bea Mombaers is fascinated by extraordinary finds and unique objects. Even as a child, she hoped to make them into her profession. In this she succeeded; from a passionate ‘forager for things’ she has become one of the most lauded figures in Belgian art and design. Mombaers is not only an interior designer, she also owns a store, is hostess in her own bed & breakfast ‘Bea B&B’, and in 2017 she successfully launched a unique bags collection Bea Mombaers for Serax.
Mombaers toyed for some time with the ideas which eventually inspired her bag collection. Being neither draftswoman nor leatherworker, she decided to call in the help of an accessory designer. ‘She had all the knowhow of design and manufacture. It instantly felt right.’ A year on, the duo had produced an entire collection, complete with hand bags, shoppers, and clutches made from premium buffalo leather. Mombaers’ designs are recognisable for their sober style, combining timeless relevance with a well-considered design. The subtle details and high-grade finish give each of the bags a great sense of luxury. In other words, this minimalist collection Bea Mombaers for Serax is a perfect reflection of the style of the creative Bea Mombaers.
