I think it is fair to say that one of the on going debates around here involves fringe. While some of you love it, others can’t stand it and still others (like myself) go back and forth. Some handbags seem even better with a hint of fringe and then others look like it had been thrown threw the shredder. A little while back Amanda wrote about the Cleobella Alvie Fringe Tote and when it came to that bag, the “fringe” was horribly executed.
Today, I came across another Cleobella handbag and I instantly braced myself. There is a chance, a small chance that the Cleobella Alvie Fringe Clutch might actually work. No, it’s not perfect, and no it wouldn’t be my go-to fringe clutch, but it is worth a glance or two. Clearly the same technique was used to construct the fringe on the tote and the clutch, but I think it looks noticeably better on the clutch. In fact, I can actually embrace the ruggedness of the clutch and can imagine a few instances in where this clutch could be put to good use. While I am not 100% sold, I still think it is leaps and bounds better than the tote. Don’t you agree? Buy through Shop Bop for $220.
