Karl Lagerfeld is one of my favorite designers. The vibe his designs create often is classic and timeless, but sometimes it can be "on the edge" and unusual. This bag is of the latter. It is very mod and does have a 60's "feel" to it even though it was created later in the century. First of all the color is definitely of the "flower power" era since it is a bright chartreuse or mint green. The color is bold and strong. The shape of the bag is long and narrow and it has a full foldover flap. The front is highly decorative with a strap at the top that has two large KARL LAGERFELD button name tags. This thick strap folds over at the ends giving depth to the bag. These round "buttons" actually are snaps and are more yellowish than green. The snaps are purely decorative. There is a design on the remainder of the front. It consists of spikey quilted leather lines with decorative stitching. In between there are three rows of circular openings that are enameled in the green color with rims of silver. These circles graduate in size and since they have open centers, they give depth and dimension to the bag. Edgy enough? The flap closes with a magnetic closure that is inside a leather coating. THis bag can be a clutch or a shoulder bag. The carry strap is a brushed metal chain combined with a strip of leather. It has brushed metal clips that can be disconnected to the bag to carry it as a clutch. The drop is 12". The inside is a silvery patterned fabric that is accented by strips of the chartreuse leather. There is a large zippered pocket and two open slip pockets. The KARL LAGERFELD name is imprinted on leather and affixed inside. The inside is spotless. The measurements of the bag are 13"w x 7"h x 13/4"d. The bag is in excellent shape, there is a faint spot under the flap and a spec on the outside. Really nothing to speak of, without these this bag would be considered mint. This is the Lagerfeld that I love.....tasteful yet surprising, funky yet functional, timeless yet retro. A very unusual creation from a master!!!!! COndition: Excellent + VINTAGE Condition
