MOSCHINO Bag

 

 

Rare MOSCHINO by Redwall colour block top handle bag with eye-catching lipstick and compact closure from the early 1990s.

 

Description

Early Moschino pieces designed by Franco Moschino himself – often referred to as Italian fashion's "enfant terrible" – within the short period when he launched the House of Moschino in 1983 until he passed away in 1994 are sought after and highly collectible. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.

 

This MOSCHINO bag is a wonderful example of Franco Moschino's fanciful designs and captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand.

 

The classic shaped design actually comprises of two rigid bags that are attached to each other. One has a navy blue body and flap and a cream white front and closes with a lovely gold tone metal lipstick turn-lock clasp. The other one features a lipstick red body and flap and a cream white front as well and closes with a gold tone metal compact folding clasp.

 

The bag is made in Italy by Redwall from high-quality glazed leather and has double wood handles at the top that are fixed with heart-shaped gold tone metal hardware. Each side has one accordion-style inner compartment, the navy blue one with an inside zippered pocket. The zipper pull metal tag is embossed with "redwall® Made in Italy" and the serial number "453073" on one side and "CENTOPERCENTO MOSCHINO" on the reverse side. The bag is lined in black "redwall" signed fabric and comes with a detachable two-tone (navy and red) leather shoulder strap and its original dust bag. Hardware and logo plate at the side are throughout embossed with "MOSCHINO" and "Redwall".

 

Condition

This bag is in overall excellent vintage condition. Minimal signs of use and storage as visible in the pictures (the navy and red flaps rubbed off on the cream front below the flap – not visible when closed). Usual scratches to the hardware and handles. Clasps, shoulder strap and interior flawless.

EMILIO PUCCI Bag & Belt

 

 

Wonderful and rare signature print clutch or shoulder bag with matching tie belt set by Emilio Pucci from the 1970s.

 

Description

This is an amazing 1970s Emilio Pucci set of a clutch bag and a matching tassel belt. Both pieces are two-in-one: the bag has attached a golden skinny chain strap that can be tucked away for it to be a true clutch or used to be able to carry it as a shoulder or even a cross-body bag. The belt can be styled either around the waist or hip as a rope belt or neck as a lariat necklace.

 

Both bag and belt feature one of Pucci's fabulous signature floral prints in raspberry pink, taupe and cream on a light taupe background. The fabric is signed throughout. The beautiful and somehow neutral colour scheme makes it work with a range of other shades.

 

The envelope style bag is covered in silk and showcases the Emilio Pucci monogram in gold metal at the center front. It consists of a single compartment, is fully lined in black satin and has a fold-over snap closure. Stamped inside on a leather label "EMILIO PUCCI BAGS MADE IN ITALY".

 

The matching tie belt or necklace consists of a thin silk jersey fabric body that is beautifully finished with two gold metal chain tassels that are topped with the characteristic "EP" initials. One size fits all.

Modern and classic at the same time. This season release line was known for this bag's sister, the Mary Kate Olsen / Ashley Olsen Chanel hobo bag.

 

The bag comes direct from a Munich, Germany, socialite so has not been on the market prior to this.

The serial number starting with "8" identifies the bag dating back to the years 2003/2004.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The black is more deep in reality. It was photoed with more light to showcase the Chanel logo "CC" embroidery.
