Pouchettes are long and slender bags also referred to as baguettes. Their interesting shape provides ample space for items inside as well as commanding visual attention by their appearance. Now imagine a pouchette designed by iconic designer Valentino Garavani and it doesn't get much better than that! The bag is narrow and long and its width is 10", the height obviously is smaller at 4 1/2". It is covered with a fuchsia colored silk that is bright and feminine with a bold streak. The fabric has a slight sheen to it. The front is covered with stones presented in a organized pattern. Most of the surface is covered with these glass stones. The pattern is linear with rows and lines being dominant. Apple green glass round stones of varying sizes occupy both the right and left sides of the front of the bag. They are arranged in neat rows and all are individually prong set. The rows are not equal in length adding interest to the design. In the middle there is a vertical "line" of multi faceted ruby red stones, mostly diamond, oval and emerald shaped. The connecting links are silver tone. The stones sparkle and shine. The entire design is startling and unusual. The bag closes with a silver tone zipper with a decorative red/silver pull tab. There is lizard carry strap that is a bright red. There is a silver tone buckle that is adjustable. The carry strap is 6" (plus/minus) depending upon the hole used in the strap. The inside is lined with a bright Christmas red silk that has a satiny shine. The sewn in red identification label reading "Valentino Garavani Made in Italy"is affixed inside. The Valentino V is also on the label. The inside looks as though the bag has never been used. The numbers "31" are written in pen inside. I have no idea what this is. The measurements are: 10" x 4 1/2" x 1-". The bag is in wonderful condition. It was rarely used, if at all. This bag makes quite a statement in many ways: its fuchsia color, its sparkling stones, its unusual jeweled pattern . It is the product of a genius' creative mind, namely Valentino Garavani. Do I need to say more? Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
