In the early scenes of Midnight Cowboy, you see an eager and ambitious Joe Buck swinging his pony hide suitcase as he’s making up his mind to make his way in New York City. He’s abandoning his apron and ditching the dirty dishes, cutting ties with the grimy in pursuit of the glamorous. It’s symbolic, it’s significant, and it certainly made an impact on us. When we decided to design a collection around the film, putting a Double D spin on that iconic piece was an absolute must.
The Valise is an oversized handbag style with both a handle and a shoulder strap, for multiple carrying options, and a front-flap closure that is anchored by large ornate concho set with faux turquoise. The unique bag consists of genuine hair-on cowhide, and leather and canvas (lining) that has been repurposed from old Italian military uniforms. Each bag has been individually and exclusively made for DDR in a cottage in Italy; every bag is one-of-a-kind, there are no two alike, and they’re guaranteed to be highly-coveted collectibles for decades to come.
