Diane von Furstenberg is an icon...and a revolutionary part of high-end fashion history. She began her career in the late 1970's after marrying Prince Egon von Furstenberg - she could have lived the "happily ever after" lifestyle of a Princess but a year after becoming royalty she has been quoted as saying, "I decided to have a career. I wanted to be someone on my own, and not just a plain girl that married beyond her desserts."

Talk about a role-model and inspiration! And while she would never have stood quietly on the sidelines, Diane von Furstenberg took her life and future into her own hands and became a "Queen" of Design and Fashion all on her own accord...no marriage certificate necessary to let the world know how amazing and "royal" she is...

Diane von Furstenburg is credited with creating the jersey "wrap dress" - her influence on women's fashion is featured and displayed in the collection of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2009, Michelle Obama wore the "DVF signature wrap dress on The Official White House Christmas Card." The DVF brand is renowned and recognizable everywhere - the pieces are Classic, Chic and Contemporary - always "valuable" and always on-trend.

This tiny box-style clutch purse is a perfect example of some of her "earlier" Vintage pieces. It is extremely rare, authentic (includes the exclusive hologram security tag) and even more precious for its history and "her"story....you won't stumble upon a DVF purse like this but once in a lifetime. When I saw it, I was still just learning of Diane von Furstenberg's continuing legacy - I found this at auction and thought, "Wow - that is incredible!” - I had NO idea it was a DVF purse. But that's what is also so remarkable about her collections - they stand-out; they radiate an energy and brilliance, but don't need to bedazzle or "brag" - their class and elegance speak volumes and everyone around will “hear."

I love this little box purse - the outside is a silky, creamy white swirled with rich, bold black designing. It has a silver-tone frame with a shiny gold-tone push lock closure. The interior is black and has a small "pocket"...this "hard" box clutch is in excellent and beautiful Vintage condition. I do believe it might be missing its "chain" handle - there are two tiny connections on the inside of the purse that while intact seem to be missing something to attach to...I'm wondering if maybe the previous owner took the chain off in order to use this purse only as a clutch - no matter what; it doesn't take away from the look or wear of this purse. I always want to provide a true and honest description/representation of my pieces-and so please know, from my research of her designs and collections-I do think this might have “lost” its chain. Part of the journey and “story” of any great purse though, right?

The gold-tone hardware features the signature engraved DVF monogram. I have attached photos to provide a better picture of the overall condition, wear, and use of this impressive purse.

It measures - approximately 5 1/4" across; 4 1/2" tall, 2 1/8" wide. The interior has the Original security tag with reads : "This tag with security features is a certificate of authenticity" with the hologram DVF maker's mark.

Kind regards,
