MOSCHINO COUTURE S/S 1993 Fleur-de-Lis Appliquéd Blue & Red Top Handle Bag

About the Item

Early Moschino pieces designed by Franco Moschino himself – often referred to as Italian fashion's "enfant terrible" – within the short period when he launched the House of Moschino in 1983 until he passed away in 1994 are sought after and highly collectible. This treasure, like several others that are already available in my shop and more to be listed gradually, comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this. This exceptional and rare Spring/Summer 1993 Moschino box bag is a love letter to Italy and dedicated to the city of Florence. It showcases some heraldic symbols, the so called 'Giglio' – a stylized red iris that is the emblem of the Tuscan capital – and the Florentine colours. The design is a wonderful example of Franco Moschino's fanciful creations and captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand. I am delighted to have found documentation of the matching jacket (I had in the shop as well) with a photo of a "Tribute to Florence" window display from January 1993 in the book about Moschino "X Anni di Kaos! 1983 1993". See the last two pictures. The twin of the jacke is part of the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The top handle bag features 22 gold metal fleur-de-lis studs set onto a royal blue patent leather on one side and an oversized cream patent leather fleur-de-lis on the other side sewn onto cherry-red patent leather. The sides are cross-striped in black and white and the bottom plain cream with five gold metal bag feet. Love the eye-catching gold metal fleur-de-lis clasp! One inner compartment with an inside zippered pocket. The zipper pull metal tag is embossed with "redwall® Made in Italy" and the serial number "443165" on one side and "CENTOPERCENTO MOSCHINO" on the reverse side. Lined in a black and white striped fabric. Comes with a detachable shoulder strap and its original "redwall" dust bag. Overall excellent vintage condition. Minimal signs of use and storage. On the red reverse few stripes where the shiny leather is a bit matte. Only visible when searching for it. Flawless interior. Height: 21,5 cm – 8.46" (including closure) / 28 cm – 11.02" (including handle) Shoulder Strap Length: 90 cm – 35.43" Maximum width: 23 cm – 9" Maximum depth: 8 cm – 3.15" Reference Photos: S/S 1993 Moschino Couture "Libertas" jacket. / Moschino Florence-inspired window display, January 1993, "X Anni di Kaos! 1983 1993".
