Celestina Cracked Mirror Clutch

I’m not much of a tiny-little-clutch fan. I mean, I’ve got a big key ring. It doesn’t always fit. Add my cell phone, and the thing surely won’t close. I’m particularly not a fan of the shiny-tiny-little-clutches. Judith Leiber? No thanks. In a pop culture that now bedazzles cell phones, her schtick it getting a bit old. I usually skip over the evening bag section of any online store, but maybe I should rethink that habit. The structure of Vivre’s site kind of forces you to look at everything – their collection is so well-edited and so stylish that they don’t really need a way to weed out the riffraff, since there’s so little of it. While idly browsing handbags today, I came across the Celestina Cracked Mirror Clutch. Instead of thousands of tiny little crystals, the small hand-held bag is fashioned out of imperfect shards of glass reminiscent of a broken mirror. The effect is mosaic-like and very unique – correct me if I’m overlooking something, but I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. The verdict? I absolutely love it. The effect is sophisticated without being over girly and unique without being super flashy. This is a modern girl’s fancy clutch, and I only wish I had someplace classy enough to carry it. Buy through Vivre for $1,130.

    Lovely to look at, difficult to hold. Every time you shift your grip, your fingerprints will show.

    I prefer the one by CC Skye (the design is more youthful and it costs roughly half of the one above)

  • Shoppa Holique

    Celestina is ridiculously overpriced! The designer, Tina Ocampo only copies from high-end souvenir shops here in Manila, and those clutches only sell for a few hundred pesos (that’s about 20 USD!)

    Sometimes, it’s not the idea that raises the bar but the craftsmanship.

    (Time to send the little crab back into the sea, Shoppa.)

    glamexhange: actually the 20 dollar clutches are just as well crafted

  • Yolanda

    Yeah, I agree, I prefer the CC Skye clutch that is very similar and cheaper.

    I am tired of seeing posts on this 7-years-of-bad-luck looking clutch… Let’s move on please!
