DVF’s new campaign (as featured in March 2011 Elle Magazine) features the “Penny” bag.
I’m really enjoying the 70’s swirly prints and the oversized tassels in what I can only describe as a bit “OFF” — note the ad was originally off-side in the magazine and it’s not due to my poor cropping capability!! Here’s a zoomed in version of the bag.
It’s a great timeless piece that has exquiste braided detail.. and GIANT TASSELS. I find anything Giant makes something old school not so old school…. take for instance:
Giant Tassels aka DVF Penny Drawstring Bucket Bag
Giant Grommets aka Burberry Warrior Bag
Giant Padlock aka Chloe Paddington (an oldie but a goodie)
Giant Hardware aka Balenciaga City with Silver Giant Hardware
But most of the time.. it’s just the GIANT price tag I have to contend with more than anything.
