Carrying your essentials for a night out just got a whole lot more vogue. Leave your totes and boho bags behind and make room for a classic tiny treasure: the clutch.
Recently, more attention has been paid to this tuckable purse as high-end designers are recreating the idea of the small pouch as a statement and status piece. After a ten-year hiatus where the bigger-the-better bag eclipsed the small-but-essential clutch, these striking new designs are a welcomed change.
French Connection’s affordable accessory department lent inspiration to explore the world of the clutch of Fall/Winter 2009. Their sequin batting eyelash version is chic and inexpensive – two words we all love to see together in a sentence.
While we swoon for a good deal on a bag, investment pieces (by which we mean, expensive pieces) have our gaze set straight on Christian Louboutin, Michael Kors, and Carlos Falchi. These electric hued clutches are a surefire way to break your savings account open with a bang.
If you’ve been hoarding your bucks for a mid-range clutch, check out what Marc by Marc Jacobs has to offer this season. Jacobs’ signature gold turn-locks stands out to make his bags expressive, but solid neutrals make sure you can get some good wear out of these little devils.
