Not only do we love a scrappy upstart in the handbag world, but we also love a bold jewelry line, which means that Mawi Fall 2013 Handbags are right up our alley. The London-based brand was originally launched a decade ago as a jewelry upstart, and based on the clutch above, we’re betting you can guess what kind of jewelry Indian-born designer Mawi makes – big, statement-making, incredibly shiny. Starting in 2012, the designer chose to expand her collection to include clutches with the same in-your-face modern glamour. To us, it looks like she’s succeeded.
These bags are certainly not for shrinking violets, and if you’re going to try to mix them with anything but a very simple outfit, you better be a pro. Because the shapes are simply and the sizes are small, though, the jewelry-on-glitter look of the pouches can definitely be pulled off with aplomb. I know it for a fact; I’ve seen it done. If you’re wary, go for balance – these kinds of bags are obviously maximal, so think minimal for your clothing. That way, the clutch shines brightest of all. (Not that it’d ever have much competition in the shine department.)
These bags will be available for fall, but you can shop the current clutch options at Mawi.co.uk.
