By now, there is no doubt you know the love I have for most clutches. I don’t know about you, but one of the reasons I am such a fan revolves around the size of a typical clutch. Usually, they are big enough to hold all of the essentials while remaining hand holdable (literally). Then, today, I came across “over sized” clutches. I don’t know how I feel about this. I mean, should these handbags even be classified as clutches? The Maison Martin Margiela Giant Pleated Clutch is a perfect example. Granted, the image takes a little away from what the bag appears like alone, but take a second and look at how LARGE this clutch is!

Maybe it is just me, but I really can’t get over the size. Call me old fashioned, but I guess I really like the “typical” size of clutches; I’m not so sure I want to supersize my clutch. But let’s move on from my hangup and look at the quality of the Giant Pleated Clutch a bit. I do like the smooth pleated leather with the signature white stitching on one side. The clutch has a zip top with an 11.5″ long wrist strap pull tab. Clearly there is plenty of room to store pretty much anything you want and there is a cell phone pocket, leather-trimmed zip pocket and a leather strap with dangling key clasp. It is a gorgeous bag, but is it too big to tote around? What do you think? If you are ready to supersize your next clutch, maybe this is the one! Buy through eLuxury for $745.00.

    I love oversized clutches! I have the Rebecca Minkoff No String Clutch (it’s sort of old, I think from last year maybe?) and it fits all my essentials, including my full-size wallet with so much room to spare. I personally love the look of oversized clutches.

    I think they look so stupid and what a cumbersome thing to carry around. If the leather isn’t really rigid the ends will droop with the shifting of contents. I don’t find them elegant in any way.

  • i agree. i kind of feel like if you need a larger bag, get a nice tote or something…

    this bag would make any average sized girl look like an olsen twin.

  • I love the big clutches. I think they are funky looking.

    yeah, not my cup of tea either. Fendi also has those super sized clutches, really not practical, just for show
