Authentic Valentino Garavani Les Sacs Large Envelope Spectator Style Clutch Purse :: Gorgeous White with “V” printed Logo & British Tan Accents :: Very Good Vintage Condition :: Wonderful for Spring and Summer :: Authentic Italian Designer Bag :: leather lined with designer label inside :: Original care instructions card still inside bag!


This has been with me for decades now, and the time has come to re-home this little cutie. I have more vintage designer bags listed here on Bonanza, and many more waiting in the queue. This one is quite versatile and will compliment a number of styles. It is likely from the 1960’s or 1970’s.

A most delightful bag, indeed — this has a wonderful white body which is printed over its entirety in the Valentino Garavani V Logo. This is by designer Valentino Garavani – NOT Mario Valentino, just to be clear here. He (Garavani) was, of course, known for his amazing and legendary contributions to Couture – and for being the man behind such legendary fashion icons and Jackie O, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn… you get the picture!

This has a lovely clean leather lining, and other than a few dark marks to the white (on the back surface), this is just in amazing vintage shape. I am glad to send you photos of these marks – they will not show up in the larger photos here. They may be “clean-able,” but I am not going to scrub this and jeopardize the beauty. A professional leather cleaner may be able to remove them totally, but honestly, the marks are not serious enough to create a visual issue.

The tan leather accents are a rich British caramel tan hue, and the pull-tab for opening the bag is a tubular leather ornament. White stitching and serrated and hole-punch details make this very special and eye-catching. All stitching appears to be in place, clean, and sturdy.

There are signs of wear and use to the bag, generally, but no actual ugliness or damage. This is NOT MINT, and I hesitate to call anything “excellent vintage condition,” but I will go with “Very very good vintage condition.” :)

**THIS COMES FROM A SMOKING and PET-INHABITED HOME – while it has NOT been stored anywhere near these irritants, you need to be aware that this does come from such an environment.

Please read my very detailed description for all the information you need – and should you require additional information, photos and so forth, please just message me! Measurements are provided, and if I have left anything out, again, glad to answer your questions.


The bag is just under 13.5 inches across the longest side, and is about 9 inches tall.

Across the side of the bag, we have a thickness of just under 2 inches. (This is with the bag closed.) If we open the bag, and measure across the side at the widest point across the top portion of the side, we have a thickness of just over 3.25 inches.

Inner tag says "Valentino Garavani Les Sacs Made in Italy.

There is an inner zippered compartment – AND the original CARD for the care of the bag is still in the compartment. Both the main compartment and the zippered area are leather lined.

Please stay tuned for more very interesting vintage items…

NOTES: More pics of this bag at my Bonanza Booth – “BudgetLuxuries” PLUS lots more coming here on Chictopia!
