    David Yurman "Cable" Tote Handbag With Sterling Silver Chain Handles, Commissioned For Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA)
    Benefitting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
    This one-of-a-kind tote by David Yurman designed for the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc, (CFDA) features dual handles, front and back flaps, adjustable tie closures at sides, coordinating stitching, and the saying "YOU CAN'T FAKE fashion" on the front. Cable is David Yurman's signature design motif, and this premier jewelry designer chose to make his bag more than just a mere bag. The handles are actually two 17-inch long, David Yurman sterling silver Oval Link Cable necklaces, which you can remove and wear. Yurman also added 2 sterling silver cable tassels to the tie closures on the left side, as well as 3-D silver-tone letters spelling CABLE across the front. Like the bag says, you can't fake fashion and you can't fake cable, so don't be fooled by cheap counterfeits; you can always tell the difference. Interior features a pouch pocket. The fully lined imported bag comes with a YOU CAN'T FAKE fashion Authenticity Certificate Card. Estimated Retail Value $3500.
