Jimmy Choo Martha Perforated Clutch

Prada, take note: if you insist on producing bags comprised mainly of perforated leather, then you might want to take some notes from Jimmy Choo on how you do it correctly.

We witnessed one of Prada’s perforated failings last week, so now I think that it’s only fair that we feature something like the Jimmy Choo Martha Perforated Clutch, which uses perforation tastefully. Well…maybe “tastefully” isn’t the word. Maybe it would best be described as “stylishly.”

The key to this clutch’s success over the perforated Prada bag is that this one uses perforations artfully and as a single element, not the full show. The pink diamond-shaped cutouts remind me more of fishnet stalkings than basketball jerseys, and I much prefer to be aesthetically transported to the 80s than to a sporting event.

It also works better because the clutch is designed better as a whole – perforations that might not work otherwise are elevated by their surroundings. I love that the entire bag is a single, beautiful color but that it has elements done in three different textures. Instead of being one-note like the Prada bag, it’s visually interesting and incredibly stylish (if you dig the 80s thing that’s going on in fashion right now, which I happen to). Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1175.

    wow, it’s gorgeous, and the size is great! the only thing bothering me is the price, I wouldn’t like spending that much on a clutch.

      The dimensions are really large though. So while it is still pricey it makes a bit more sense for what you get

        I agree. Maybe I didn’t express myself right, I meant “me”, in my situation, but if I could afford it I would definitely buy it, it really looks amazing. I think there won’t be any left for sale, so I won’t hope :P

    I got so excited when I saw my new bag on purseblog I needed to sign up to comment! I am lucky enough to own this wonderful bag. After my recent engagement my fiancé surprised me with an early hannukah gift! I am a proud owner of many leather Prada bags, yet nothing can compare to the style and craftmanship that Jimmy Choo did with this bag. By the way, the size is perfect..

    It looks like it should be “clutched”, nice and soft. The textures are very nice.

    OMG this is the first thing that comes out of this brand that I really like! I love this clutch

    Another disaster! The bag would be so beautiful if the name plate was placed on the side. It could have been a work of art.
