Va Va Voom! this bag causes a stir every time its’looked at. This bag is from The Candy Collection. Made from silk taffeta in a very old French silk mill and brought to me by my favourite Vancouver Couturier.  This is a soft, fluffy bag, lined with a soft green shot with pink duppioni silk.  This bag can be used as a clutch or a cocktail purse for it has a long silk handle to throw over your shoulder while you sip champagne and hold court.  The handle can be tucked up and put inside.   There is a credit card pocket inside with the bags name embroidered on it. Passementerie trim, a little braid with colourful mini tassels adorns the neck of the bag and the most wonderful ostrich feather topping with a few Coque tail feathers to add to the overall texture and wonderfulness. Peppermint Twist has been detailed with Swarovski crystal glass pearl feet in a soft pale green to match the flurry above. The bottom has been stiffened but I wouldn’t be putting too much in this creation, your phone, your keys, credit card and a lipstick is all this should carry, or it might lose its fluffy, puffy appearance! There is only one of these bags and no more supplies to make others, so if you like it grab it up and run to your next little gathering!

The bags dimensions are about 8” (20 cm) wide x 3” (8 cm) deep x 6 1/2” (17 cm) high.   The handle measures 18” (46 cm) long one side.

Cleaning Instructions: As this is silk spot cleaning by a very good dry cleaner is suggested. While not in use the bag should have the acid free tissue stuffing replaced in it to keep its shape, and kept in the clear plastic bag to keep dust off it.

Peppermint Twist sells for $295.00.
