Finally some high quality stuff to be featured in our novelty section. The poor place has been collecting dust in the past months. But this time, some clever clutches promise to spice things up a notch. Robin Goetz and Joanna Lipman form the dynamic duo behind the New York City based company Femme Sud. They’ve both fancied vintage since early age, and their common passion for bags and jewelry from the early days eventually brought them together. Now, Robin was kind enough to email Megs about their sparking new Ex Libris Clutch Collection, and we just had to feature this new designer duo’s work. Simply fantastic.
Now, the Ex Libris collectible clutches come in six dazzling flavors. Birds & Bees, Datebook, Diary (pictured), Fame & Fortune, Our Wedding and Yearbook. Each of the clutches has their own cute theme to it, all are very girly and playful. The NYC handmade clutches are all made of italian lambskin and feature detailed embroidery that is carefully crafted. Its inside “pages” or pockets are lined in satin and carry a 3×5 inch oval mirror. Each book also features leather corners for inserting a 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 picture, making the clutches perfect as a gift for a special someone. A satin coin purse and lipstick are included as a cute extra on top. All of the clutched are limited to 999 and go for $595 a piece. Like the idea of a book clutch?
