It’s not every day that I wake up and find photos of bags like the Lulu Guinness Fan Clutches waiting to greet me in my inbox, but every now and then, I get lucky and beautiful bags just appear. Yesterday was one of those days, and to make the whole thing even better, these clutches are here for a good cause.

Lulu Guinness partnered with British visual artist Rob Ryan to create the one-off collaboration that you see above. The clutch, which is signed by both Guinness and Ryan, is currently being auctioned off via eBay to benefit African AIDS charity ASAP. If it’s not your style, Guinness has also released two other handmade fan clutches in very limited editions, inspired by former model Sophie Dahl and singer Paloma Faith. Pictures of those are after the jump.

Lulu Guinness Paloma Fan Clutch, £795.00

Lulu GUinness Sophie Fan Clutch, £595.00

Bid on the Lulu Guinness Rob Ryan Clutch via eBay!

    I wouldn’t mind owning any of them, but clutch #3 is my favorite, with #1 is running a close second.

    I LOVE the #1 handbag. It is beautifully made (from what I can see) and it tells a story and I just love that. # 3 is very very pretty as well. And I also like # 2, but you have to be careful with the outfit and where to wear it.
    Thank you Megs, for sharing !
