In honor of New York Fashion Week, we offer the most fabulous evening bag we've ever seen. Made in a limited edition of twelve (ours is etched 1/12 on a bottom rhinestone) likely sometime in the late 80s. The company 31 Fevrier, Paris (a fantasy date for a fantasy bag) was launched in 1987 by partners Hélène Nepomiatzi and Marc Gourmelen andthe quality suggests a couture level of craftsmanship. The striking originality of 31 Février had won for its founders
prestigious collaborations with Karl Lagerfeld, Thierry Mugler, Chloé,
& Paco Rabanne. The clasp and frame are gilded bronze with no less than 150 stones with an average height of 1" each - this is a sparkling fashion statement and a jewel of a find.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
