The Iconic Yasmine Bag
23/09/2019 — Vivienne Westwood
The Yasmine handbag was first presented at the Gold Label Autumn-Winter 1987/88 runway show titled – Time Machine and later appeared in seminal Vivienne Westwood shows such as Café Society Spring-Summer 1994 and Anglomania Autumn-Winter 1993/94.
Originally named after the French designer Yasmine Eslami, who was working for Westwood in the 80’s, Yasmine carried the first prototype of the bag to hold her absolute essentials – cigarettes, lighter and lipstick.
