Money can buy a lot of beautiful things, but without luck, money can’t buy you a great piece of vintage. To look for THE vintage piece takes a lot of patience, a lot of efforts, and tons of luck. Without the right place, time, and connections, we wouldn’t be able to score so many unique and rare vintage pieces for you.
We’re sure you know where we’re getting at. That’s right, all stars aligned and every elements presented, we found you this rare vintage Dior oversized folded clutch bag made with brown monogram cloth and leather. A referral took us to Verona this Christmas (it was also a vacation so no complaints), to a beautiful apartment full of new age sculptures, antique paintings, and rusty metal toy cars. The very very very old lady and her caregiver/interpreter treated us cake and coffee while showing us pieces of her vintage collections, mostly from the late 19th century to the 30s. We honestly couldn’t say no to the kind old lady but they really weren’t our style, until she took out this Dior. She was ashamed to show it to us because this whole time she thought we were antique dealers and 70s is considered “garbage”. Anyway, cash on the table right away followed by a lot of lost in translations along with tons of kisses and hugs, we headed back to our hotel to lock up this treasure. So this is the story of how we met your Dior.
This clutch works like a practical tote bag that you can fold in half as you wish. We filled the bag with a denim jacket when taking the secondhand photo. Then we added our MacBook Air just to prove (to ourselves) it is indeed super practical. we love the wide and open compartment in the bag so you can be organized.
Also more details you need to know:
1. Cloth show some amounts of wear especially on the bottom part close to the corners.
2. Leather piping and handles show considerable amount of wear as shown in photos.
3. Snap button works well.
4. Interior is lined with brown leather with minor wear and tear.
5. Hot pressed gold logo of “Christian Dior, made in France,” is majority rubbed off, with a hint of gold left behind. You may still faintly see the logo from the hot pressed marks.
6. We think Carrie Bradshaw has a clutch like this?
