The Mochino brand is a mystery to me. It is very difficult to get information on this brand doing an internet search. Most of what I know is based upon discussions with others. I do know the following: Moschino was an ardent animal rights supporter, his early bags are the most creative and fun and they are the most collectible, he contracted with Redwall in the 1980's to design purses, in his early years Moschino designs also reflected social commentary, some of his bags were made in China and his bags are reproduced. Having said all that, I am offering two Moschino "peace and love" bags from the 1990's. One bag is an extra large tote or hobo bag while the other is a small wristlet type. Both are made of a dark brown crackled leather (?) that might not be real leather but what ever it is, it is a high end faux material. It is very soft and flexible. The extra large bag has no structure and is very slouchy and flexible. It has three figural designs made from bright brass studs. There is a large peace sing in its circle, a large heart and then to everyone's surprise, a question mark. They are bordered in shiny circular studs. The Moschino name is studded at the top. These studs are also brass but a bit smaller. The effect of all this is very funky. There is a zippered compartment on the back. The bag closes with a zipper that has a huge brass ring attached to the pull tag. There is a double carry strap with a drop of 10". The inside is lined with a burnt orange "Moschino" fabric. There is an inner zippered pocket. The inside is in great shape with little evidence of age or wear. The bag measures 12h x17"w x3"d. The bag is in wonderful condition with little evidence of use with the exception of a little wear on the corners. The smaller bag is essentially round although it is shaped as a heart. It has a large heart that is also bordered with three rows of bright round studs. The carry strap has "MOSCHINO" studded in smaller brass studs on its front side. The drop is 6". The bag opens with a zipper that has the same large brass round charm attached to the pull tag. The inside has the same "Moschino" fabric and there is an internal zippered pocket. The inside and the outside are in great condition. The measurements are 8 1/2"w x 7"h x 2 1/2"d. These two bags are very well made, they are fun and they are versatile. There are two similar bags to the larger one on the internet now. They are being sold for $195, with an original retail value of $795. Here's your chance to buy two for less than the price of one!
