An ode to Coco Chanel’s 1955 design that changed the world of designer handbags, the Reissue collection uses the original hardware on the shoulder bag that Coco created.  She wanted to make a bag that was a more user friendly design than the traditional hand held purses popular in the first half of the century.   There are four different sizes of the Reissue line, with the 227 we offer today, being the largest style, similar to the Jumbo 2.55.  This purse is crafted out of the durable caviar leather and is adorned with oxidized and etched silver hardware on double or single style chain strap and Mademoiselle turn lock clasp.  First flap opens to a small zippered pocket on underside of flap and slim compartment on back wall of purse.  Second flap snaps open to main interior compartment with two side pockets and a slim front pocket on outside of bag under flap.  Finished with final pocket on back exterior of bag.  Like new, sold with dust bag.  Size 12.5″ [W] x 7.25″ [H] x 4″ [D], with an adjustable shoulder drop from 11 inches to 19 inches in length.  Originally retailed $4000, our price is $3000.

MAYLE Black and Grey Micro Dot and Butterfly Printed Silk Dress, Size 0

Jane Mayle is back!!  The Mayle line was a collected brand for the indie New York fashionistas from the late 90’s to early 2000’s, but due to creative differences between Jane herself and the brands director, she decided to shutter the brand eight years ago.  To all of our delight, 2016 brought the label back, with a new line of romantic classics.  This dress is a lovely take on a vintage wrap dress cut with swiss micro dots and pixelated butterflies throughout.  Detailed with ruffles along the low cut collar and front wrap, sweet buttons along the waist and short sleeves and a fitted waist that has a hint of elastic in back to keep you breathing comfortably.  Cut higher in the front than the back, this dress is made for heels, lifting you up so the train of the skirt flaws elegantly behind you.  Brand new, with tags.  Size 0.  Retailed for $800, priced at $399.
