Item #5522 Fiorucci Shopping Bag. Elio Fiorucci, designer.

Fiorucci Shopping Bag

New York: Fiorucci, c.1979. Vintage color-printed paper shopping bag, die-cut on one side with nylon mesh netting inside and retractable paper-covered wire handles (measures 20" x 6").

"Enrich your life with Fiorucci." Oversized, color-printed Fiorucci paper grocery bag from the NYC Fiorucci store on East 59th Street. "Until it closed its doors in 1984, Fiorucci was a haven for artists, designers, cool kids and anyone who wanted to be involved in it all. But it also came to stand for something larger: a mecca where people danced during the day, shoppers paraded around like they were in a fashion show and celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Cher and Jacqueline Onassis came for the scene...Fiorucci was what many referred to as 'a daytime Studio 54' — a store that came to represent a unique aesthetic at a specific cultural moment" (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/19/t-magazine/fiorucci-new-york-store-history.html). Some edgewear and creasing. Very good. Item #5522
