Another interesting bag by another interesting designer! Renaud Pellegrino produced bags under his own trademark starting in the early '90's. However, he was heavily involved in design since the age of 14 when he became an apprentice for a tannery company. He worked for YSL starting in 1975 and is attributed with creating the "cardinal bag". He worked for Dior, Givenchy and Ungaro. In 1983 he started his own boutique. His creative designs are known for their diverse materials and reflect his wizardry with form. His collections are permanently featured in the Musee de la Mode de Marseille. This particular purse exemplifies his fascination with shape and form. It is very sculptural. Its shape is tall and slender. It appears flat and yet it is curved. It appears to resemble a "bucket." The bag is covered with a deep black , soft luxurious silk. There is a carry handle made of the same fabric. This strip extends downwards at the sides of the bag. There is a rhinestone "buckle" towards the ends of both sides of the carry handle. The buckle has 3 rows of glittering rhinestones bordering the fabric. The rhinestones are multi faceted and individually prong set. The "prong" part of the buckle is there but it is not operational. Each buckle measures 1 1/2"w x 2"h. These buckles add just enough glitz to the bag. The handle has a drop of 6". The bag closes with a snap closure. The snap closure is part of the interesting shape of the bag in so far as it is recessed into the bag and leaves a slight half moon observable to the eye. (see pictures). The inside is lined with a satin black fabric and there is an open slip pocket. The leather identification label is affixed inside stating "Renaul Pellegrino 14, Paubourg Saint Monroe, Paris, Made in France." The inside is in great condition looking as though the bag was hardly used. The measurements of the bag are 6"w x 8"h x 3"d. The bag is in wonderful condition without any specific issues to mention. This bag is sophisticated and elegant. In a minimal way, this bag makes a maximum statement. If you like unique and unusual purses, this one fits the bill! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
