Audrey Hepburn's purse in Breakfast at Tiffany's

  1. Hi, all!!!

    I've carried purses all my life, but I've just recently gotten 'into' handbags. I'm glad to have found your forum!

    I watched 'Breakfast at Tiffany's" last night and was struck by Audrey Hepburn's purse. It was gorgeous black patent (maybe croc too??), with a snap top, and a gold chain. Can anyone tell me about that purse, and better, where can I get one just like it!!??

    thanks in advance

  2. Maybe Chanel. You might want to try that forum.
     
  3. Do you have a pic?
     
  4. Sorry, no pic. I've been searching all over the web and can't find it.
     
  5. It is probably this one. Sorry, I don't know what it is. It would probably be hard to track one down since the film was made in 1961.

  6. YEP!! That's the one!
     
  7. It looks like a Chanel to me, but I have no idea which style. Chain strap, mademoiselle lock. These things are very much a Chanel style.
     
  8. Wow, you'll needgood luck on your side to find a vintage Chanel like that.
     
  9. i have no idea..but welcome to tPF!!!! get ready for becoming addicted to the forum and handbags!! lol
     
  10. I love that bag as well. I was thinking the same thing the first time I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's (about a year ago). It is a lovely bag, probably a vintage Chanel. You might be able to find it, but you would definitely pay for it. You could check the bay, but you'd pay a lot for it.
     
  11. LoL Omg that's a coincidence! I saw that movie on v-day with my bf and was 'omg i want that chanel bag' to him and he just smiles. I'd love to know what the style/name is.
     
  12. This one seems to be a close match. Not an expert so I can't say if it's real or not.
     
  13. Yes. That one is really close, except that the closure on Audrey Hepburn's is a kiss lock. thanks for digging up that photo!
