Fabulous finds: We recently purchased a large Ruth Saltz estate from an elderly collector. Many of the bags are in absolute mint condition and have never been used. We are also in the process of purchasing another huge vintage collection. In addition we have a super soft genuine blue leather Viva of California shoulder bag, a pair of authentic Louis Vuitton sling-back pumps, & a magnificent pair of vintage Walter Steiger pumps in size 9.5 B.
Many of today's couture designers have been in business for a long time and their continuing success is simple: quality, timeless elegance, and vision for the future. This is especially true for Etienne Aigner. In the early 1930's Etienne Aigner discovered his love for fine leather and started out making belts for established fashion couture houses such as Christian Dior and Edward Molyneux. His work was so popular they soon had him make belts and handbags. Etienne Aigner was the first to design Handbags with the seam to the outside. In the 1950's Etienne Aigner moved to New York City and established his own company. He designed his bags in his famous "rot" (red) and found success almost instantly. I began collecting Etienne Aigner Handbags in the 60's and he is still our favorite.
