Charis­matic, bold and ir­rev­er­ent, the artis­tic direc­tor of Del­vaux—the world’s old­est fine leather goods house—has pro­pelled the Bel­gian brand into the mod­ern era. To mark the open­ing of Del­vaux’s Land­mark bou­tique this month, we ask Zeller to share five

This book by le­gendary pho­tog­ra­pher Hans Sil­vester presents stun­ning images he took on a trip to Ethiopia. Each photo of­fers a glimpse into the daily lives of the Omo peo­ple. It’s a rare, in­ti­mate view of their world. We have this piece in Del­vaux’s flag­ship store in Brus­sels. I love it for its sim­plic­ity, strength and grace. It’s from 1952—Braem was a key fig­ure of the 20th-cen­tury art move­ment in Europe, and one of Bel­gium’s most prom­i­nent ar­chi­tects in the early 1950s. It moves me ev­ery time I pass by the bou­tique. One of my favourite restau­rants in Paris. It’s in Saint-ger­main-des-prés and be­longs to Miche­lin­starred chef Jean François Piège and his wife, Elodie. It’s a quaint and sim­ple bistro with an open kitchen serv­ing cre­ative French cui­sine. I re­cently pur­chased this ring and cuff de­signed by Zaha Ha­did for the Dan­ish de­sign house. I like how mod­ern they look with their sim­ple yet el­e­gant graphic lines. I feel proud when I wear them; I see them as a tribute to the amaz­ing ar­chi­tect and woman Zaha was.
