This gorgeous handbag is the original Bonnie Cashin for Meyers Body Bag circa 1975. One of her first creations for Meyers after she left Coach in 1974. Ms. Cashin brought many new designs to Meyers, a company known for making quality handbags but with the addition of Ms. Cashin, it turned a relatively small, unknown company to the forefront. She also incorporated some designs from when she was with Coach. This stunning Black Leather Body Bag highlights the iconic, and highly sought after, Bonnie Cashin designs. It is in excellent condition and from a private collection.
Totally handmade in Norwalk, Connecticut from the thick, rich Cowhide specified by Ms. Cashin herself in the color of Black that shines like new and shows the natural grain of the cowhide of this slim profile gem. Lift the long, thick flap to see three slit pockets with one having a solid brass Serval zipper. Look inside the contoured opening to see the clean and smooth Black suede interior. There is a singe zippered security pocket that also has a Serval zipper and it is spotless clean as well. Just below the pocket is the Bonnie Cashin for Meyers stamp.
The leathers are just remarkable as it is so thick and rich, this Cashin could last generations. As with any handmade handbag, each are unique to themselves. As Ms. Cashin wanted, the veins, variations of the leather show the natural quality. The wonderful results are a handbag with substantial weight and extraordinary quality throughout.
The strap is wide for comfort and was hand-stitched. The piping and seams are all intact and the smell of the leathers is there. This is an original Bonnie Cashin for Meyers that will leave no doubt of what it is and the compliments will come.
It measures in at 10”L x 11 “H x 2 ½ “D and the single strap affords a 15” drop.
