When you want to make a statement - a great accessory can do that for you. Round wicker handbag with leather trim and grommet accents. Bag has a leather closure with metal clasp. Inside leather side slit pocket. Newspaper advertisement found inside bag with a price range from $26 - $44 - Now their bags range in cost from $600 - $1000 on average. Agree this bag belongs trackside.

Very good condition - found one grommet missing and some wear to hardware does not effect function of bag.
From Etienne Aigner website:
"The design of the 60s and 70s reflected this great freedom. It was young, streamlined and futuristic, with an emphasis on the colour orange.
It was that freedom, the special feel of that time, which inspired the young brand AIGNER. Wild horses were best suited to those wild years with their wild parties. The AIGNER Racing Days, an event organized by the prestige brand just outside Munich, soon became a firm fixture in a society still unaccustomed to such events.
AIGNER gave its products a rural, country style feel. There was always a sense of the racecourse, a feeling of being by the fireside. A phenomenon that can still be felt today."
