Back view, showing pretty gold logo, the logo must always be pretty I think.
Just back from Milan with my latest purchase! I mean you can't go to Milan without buying a great bag, now can
you? Right? 😉 This is my very first DVF bag: Excited.....
Diane Von Furstenberg: The 440 mini leather & luxe watersnake bag.
Taking its New York cool aesthetic and 440 title from the original DVF design studio, this leather and watersnake
combo shoulder bag is a must-have for any girl about town. A vivacious red leather finish and exotic front panel make this a fabulous way to accessorise any day to night ensemble.
This bag comes in off white, grey, black, brown/black leopard mix, blue and my colour, choice red! It’s a beautiful mixture of crimson
& red combined, I am also not sure why they called it a mini bag as it is the size of a 2.55 Chanel bag and I would personally call that medium not mini.
The bag has two red leather and gold chain adjustable shoulder straps, this medium bag
can be carried either as a crossbody or with the chain link strap doubled to wear as a shoulder which means the feel can be casual or formal. It has a grey logo embroidered lining and a zipped internal pocket.
I always also love when a bag has a back
slip pocket which this bag does have, and which features a lovely gold metal logo detail and a concealed magnetic button fastened watersnake front flap with a gold metal and black enamel clasp. It is not too rigid, but structured enough,
a nice mix I think.
I am looking forward to wearing it this Autumn/Winter especially to brighten up any black or navy ensembles as we head into grey dark winter days ahead.......And.......
much more importantly this bag matches the exact colour of lipstick I always favour and love to wear, so I am sorted - well.........for a little while anyway!
All in all a versatile, well-designed & mood-uplifting purchase from the wonderful
house of Diane Von Furstenberg, a great woman, a great house. 👜
