  1950s Designer Handbags and Purses

 

Chanel, Hermes, Luis Vuitton, Gucci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Christian Dior luxurious designer handbags were on display on glass counters. At an after five o'clock cocktail party or dinner, small purses would be carried and gloves would be worn. Designer Coco Chanel's quilted designer handbags were popular, as well as the famous Kelly purse made for Grace Kelly by the designer Hermès after she used one to demurely obscure her pregnant belly in a photograph on the cover of Life Magazine.
