On April 23rd Carlos Falchi celebrated 30 years at Bergdorf Goodman with a retrospective exhibition. Not only were there gorgeous pieces dating back to the 70s on display, but Falchi designed 10 one-of-a-kind bags for the occasion. The designer himself was there and explained that five of the limited edition handbags were inspired by styles from his archives and five were inspired by New York City. When I asked Falchi about his favorite he said that they were all his babies and he couldn’t choose, but if forced to pick he pointed to the Blue Python Signature Satchel ($3,940) pictured above along with its original sketch. More images after the jump!
How stunning is the tale flap of this alligator bag??? The specially designed bag is retailing for $24,990.
This Lizard Fringe ($1,105) was another favorite. Doesn’t it kind of look like a bag Alexander Wang might design?
This is one of the five New York-themed bags. It’s a hand-painted python clutch ($1,070). Not my personal style, but the skin and craftsmanship are truly flawless.
