Mary with her (formerly my) Fiorucci handbag

Fiorucci is an Italy-based young fashion label founded by Elio Fiorucci. The label's heyday was the 1970s. In the early 1960s, Fiorucci was a small shoe shop in Milan owned and run by present Fiorucci tycoon Elio's father. The elegant Milanese with money used to have their clothes and shoes made to order.

This handbag was a gift, not sure where my friend found it. I thought the New York Fiorucci store had long since closed!
