PURSES:

CHANEL Black Quilted Patent Leather ‘East/West Flap Bag’ – SOLD

From Chanel’s 2000 Collection, the “East/West Flap Bag” was the more accessible version of Chanel’s classic flap bag, and is now the more collectible style, as it was discontinued in 2010.  This piece is in quilted black patent leather, and has brushed silver hardware.  The signature turn-key front, opens to reveal black leather lining and two open pockets.  The brushed silver chain strap with matte leather lacing is a fantastically edgy contrast to the shiny vinyl body.  Size 10.5″ [W] x 5.5″ [H] x 1.75″ [D] with a shoulder drop of 12.5 inches.  Priced at $1,000.

JEWELRY:

CHANEL 18K Solid Gold Camellia Brooch – SOLD

CLOTHING:

BALENCIAGA Black and White Wool Knit Jacket, Size 4 – SOLD

This very mod black and white grid knit wool jacket by Balenciaga is fashion-forward practicality at its best.  The finely knit grid pattern is accented to perfection with the jacket’s boxy, slightly androgynous structure, yet feminine with its bracelet-length sleeves, and stand-up portrait collar.  A couture touch of two midnight blue beaded cluster buttons sit at the top of the jacket, just below the collar, for a vintage juxtaposition.  This piece is made even more lovely in its structure, as it is fully lined in black velvet.  Size 4 (French 36).  Priced at $399. SOLD

BURBERRY LONDON Black Cashmere/Wool Cape with Fox Fur Collar, Size M – SOLD

Opulent elegance moves through this gorgeous cape by Burberry.  The felted cashmere/lambswool blend drapes lightly, but with purpose.  Dyed black fox fur comprises the collar, and elevates this piece to chic’s epitome.  The top of the cape is secured by a hidden button, and closes with a horn toggle button.  Like new, this fashionable piece is priced at $399. SOLD
