Almost as important as the black bag, is the navy blue bag. Both items are a must for the fashionista. Offering a gorgeous and smartly styled navy bag by the iconic designer Valentino Garavani. That says it all! The bag is large in size and is messenger style with a large foldover front flap. The color is a sophisticated navy blue, a true navy not midnight blue or royal blue. The leather is softly grained and of a high quality. The bottom right corner is where Valentino "struts his stuff." There is a thin bar 4"long by 1/4"wide that is placed diagonally on the corner. The bar is bordered in bright gold tone metal and enameled in navy blue between the borders. Just above this bar is delicate and artfully done ruching that results in gentle and subtle curved pleats that "fan" out. It is dimensional not being flat on the surface. This "slight" feature, the bar and the pleating, makes such a grand statement that succeeds in transforming the bag into a unique and sophisticated piece. This is the mark of a true genius. The front flap closes with a snap. The there is a leather shoulder strap that can be tucked inside when worn as a clutch. The drop is 19". The inside is lined with the blue leather. There is a zippered pocket. "Valentino Garavani Made in Italy" along with the iconic "V" is affixed inside on a gold metal panel. The inside is in good shape with minor signs of wear and use. The bag measure 10"w x 8 1/2 h x 1 1/2". The bag is in great condition with the only the expected minor signs of use and wear. Nothing significant. There are a few faint scratches and scuffs that could probably be polished out. Remember the camera magnifies everything many times. I leave this to the new owner. It takes a designer such as Valentino Garavani to create such a purse. It takes great skill, unusual creativity and brilliant fore thought to create such a sophisticated, tailored and classic bag. Kudos to this special designer!!!! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
