Clutches

Believe it or not, writing about luxury handbags has one itty bitty downside. It’s hard to believe there’s a downside at all, right? I mean, I get to look the latest handbags in the industry and analyze them and report back to you with the pros, cons and aesthetic pleasures (for the most part) of such bags.

Christian-Louboutin-Spiked-Clutch

This clutch is just another example of my ever-growing love for all things Louboutin. Christian Louboutin has a knack for taking ordinary accessories and loading them with details and embellishments to make them unlike others on the market.

Kate Spade Dictionary Clutch

Year after year, collection after collection, I fall in love with the designs of Kate Spade again and again. I tend to gravitate towards Spade’s handbags because the brand knows how to tastefully mix modern chic with vintage glam.

Matthew Williamson Brocade and Suede Clutch (2)

British designer Matthew Williamson is best known for his richly patterned dresses, but Williamson also knows that with every great evening gown, you need a great handbag. His bags exude the same type of ultra-luxe-hippie sensibility as his ready-to-wear, and they often also feature his bold, intricate prints and embellishments.

Gucci Garcon Clutch

With New York City having been so recently overtaken by the glitz and glamour of New York Fashion Week, it seemed appropriate to spotlight a clutch that embodies the same kind of allure. My choice for this week’s show-stopping purse (drum roll please) is the Gucci Garcon Gold and Crocodile Clutch.

Anya Hindmarch Valerie Metallic Leather Clutch

I have to say, when it comes to handbags, the PurseBlog team tends to influence one another pretty frequently. Well, it’s happened again. A few days ago, Amanda covered Kelly Osbourne carrying a neon Chanel Flap over on BagThatStyle.

Celestina Resort 2013 (10)

Back when I first started writing for PurseBlog (in the Dark Ages, basically), I used to see beautiful, incredibly intricate clutches, often made from shell or filigree, pop up here and there from a small brand called Celestina.

Kotur Resort 2013

We say this here a lot, but that’s because it’s true: Clutches and evening bags are a fantastic venue for intense, intricate, sometimes crazy embellishment. Their small size means that they can be dunked in glitter, covered in sequins, studded with rhinestones and any number of other embellishments without overwhelming the rest of an ensemble.

Valextra Alligator Isis Clutch

Full disclosure folks, this bag is not cheap, like, at all. I’ll get into the specifics on the price later, but now that I’ve been up front, I feel as though I can talk about this beautiful bag without the guilt.

Olympia Le-Tan Clutches

“Cult” is a word that can be easily abused; just because a brand has a small, relatively enthusiastic group of fans does not a cult favorite make. That fans have to be so dedicated, so ardent in their love for a designer’s work that they create a high-entry point that’s almost prohibitive for newcomers.
