Anything that iconic designer Valentino Garavani creates, makes a statement. All designs be it couture or not, possess that quality that sets him apart from others. I believe during the 1980's he created a "NIGHT" line which was exclusively designed for night wear. I have seen several of these bags and they all capture the essence and magic of evening wear. This bag exemplifies that. It is a medium sized fold over envelope bag. It is rectangular in shape. It is a shoulder bag but the braided silk cord strap can be tucked inside so the bag can be carried as a clutch. It is made of deep ebony black suede. The suede is soft and supple and a pleasure to touch. The front has a diagonal black grosgrain stripe across the surface. The suede is puckered or ruched at various points along this ribbon. This adds depth to the bag and interest. Skillfully done. At the top right corner there is a large decorative accent resembling a "bow". The ribbon cuts through the bow. Rows of sparkling and shiny silver sequins full the inside space of the bows. The bows are outlined with small grey toned beads. This accent has a "deco" vibe to it. It is sharp, clean and succinct. Reminds me of "putting on the Ritz." The bag closes with a magnetic snap closure. The back of the flap has an indented "V" in an oval shape. There is a braided silk black cord carry strap which has a drop of 17 1/2". The inside is lined in Valentino red grosgrain satiny fabric. There is a zippered pocket. The red label stating "NIGHT Made in Italy Valentino Garavani" is sewn inside. The inside is in great condition without signs of wear or age. The bag measures 8 3/4"w x 6 3/4"h x 1"d. The bag is in wonderful condition without any issues to mention. There are NO stains or spots on the suede, any marks you might see are the natural characteristic of suede when touched or the reflection of the camera's light. This is such a smart and sophisticated evening bag. In a simple way it makes a tremendous statement. Typical of Valentino! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
