    Lana Marks Large Matte Chocolate Crocodile Positano Tote Bag with Silver Hardware, Retail ~$17,000
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    15" Width x 12" Height x 6" Depth

    Out of her beautiful boutiques on Madison Avenue in New York, on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, and around the world, Lana Marks quietly creates some of the finest bags in the world for celebrities, society, and royals alike. Her clutches are often seen on red carpets and her most famous bag was designed for Princess Diana and carries her name. More recently, the Positano has become the most popular design from Lana Marks for it's simple styling, functionality, and quality. The Positano was famously carried by the character Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 2 in pink crocodile, of course. For those that are slightly more conservative, we have the Positano in Chocolate Matte Crocodile. The retail price for this bag is over $17,000. For its size, the bag is relatively light-weight and slides easily over the shoulder. The matte skin is soft and supple. The front buckle, bearing the designer's name, can be unclipped for ease of use and there is an exterior zipper pocket on the back of the bag. The interior is done in lambskin leather and features a slide pocket, a zipper pocket, and a cell phone pocket. There is also a detachable, extra long shoulder strap. This bag is in Very Good Condition to Excellent Condition. The skins are in excellent condition with some light, stray marks. The hardware shows light scratching. The handles appear to have darkened slightly.
