Black and White

Elisa Schiaparelli Design 1940's 

The combination of black and white has been a fashion statement since Coco Chanel, Elisa Schiaparelli and other top fashion designers decades ago created the HOT COUTURE LOOK. The NY Times stated "ANYONE who's looking around for a bold fashion statement need look no further: it's right there in black and white. Granted, this may not be the newest duo on the block, but time has done nothing to rob it of zest or stylishness. Consider the array of B&W combos seen recently on the streets of NYC."

Unique Vintage Black & White Handbags. 

Spring & Summer Fashion Trend — Black & White

Terminology regarding the condition of the Vintage Handbags:
Please remember when buying vintage purses there are normally minor imperfections 
 unless these are very noticable or detract from the style or attractiveness of the item they are not normally mentioned.
LOOKING FOR PERFECTION - VINTAGE IS NOT FOR YOU!

(Mint Condition) MINT - As close to "new" as possible for its age. No problems.
(Excellent Condition)
Normal wear expected for age. Any problems are not easily visible.
(Gently Used)

(Used) A purse that was used everyday. Not abused.... but used, shows more noticeable wear.

(Rest assured I do not sell handbags that are not attractive or fit to carry.)
