Yesterday afternoon I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet Lulu Guinness at her Manhattan boutique and preview her upcoming collection, and although I came away from the event with many thoughts (Lulu and her team are lovely, I need more opportunities to drink prosecco in the afternoon, I can understand why West Village rents are so astronomical), the one thing that keeps popping into my head is how much I want a Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch. And since I can’t shake the feeling, there’s no better candidate for this week’s Want It Wednesday.
I’m a sucker for whimsical and heavily adorned box clutches, but there are two key things that set this design apart: The shape and the price point. While carrying around a set of lips might be a tad bold for some people, the luxurious feel of these designs strikes a chord right between ladylike and pop-art punk that I find irresistible. Plus, I always appreciate a little bit of humor in my fashion.
And while many brands’ signature box clutches start in the four figures and head up from there, you can get a colorful Perspex Lips Clutch for $350, a lizard version for $435 (the Union Jack motif shown is a little more pricey), studs for $710 or Swarovski for $1025. At those prices, you might actually be able to add more than one to your collection. I’d like to add them all. Buy through LuluGuinness.com
