Vintage 1970’s Sylvia of Paris magazine clutch purse. Is it a magazine…...or is it a purse? This style of purse was a fashion statement in the 1970’s when the young ladies going out for the evening would carry their necessities for the evening in this style of purse to the local discotheque. This style of purse again made a surge in popularity when the character “Carrie” portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker on the romantic sitcom “Sex In The City”, was seen carrying one during season 3. The uniqueness of this purse is that it gives the appearance that one is carrying a rolled up fashion magazine instead of a purse. Even though this style of purse has an uncertain history as to its origin, it is starting to be on the verge of another fashion comeback in evening wear ensemble. This vintage purse also features a black silk like material liner on the inside and features a small side pocket on the inside of the purse with a leather snap clasp enclosure. This vintage magazine clutch purse is in excellent condition with the exception of a 1” scratch on the back panel of the purse and no holes, tears, rips or stains. It measures 12” long and 4 ⅝” high.
