As the old saying goes, life imitates art, and fashion is one of the rare occasions that art and utility combine to form something fantastic and functional.

Going forward, we’re going to be featuring some guest posts by Amateur Couture about the visual intersection of handbags and art, like the similar geometric lines of this Jil Sander clutch and the colorful crystal lasers exhibit photo from MWM Graphics.

    I thought it was art imitates life? Love the clutch.

    I think it’s both?

    Anyway, yes, gorgeous clutch, but does look more like a make-up bag, which you could use as a clutch if you so chose; rather than a clutch per se.

    I would love it, even more, if it had light neutral coloured leather trim and was about 7″ x 5″; because, then, it would make a perfect make-up bag to fit in my clutches.

    Alernatively, if it had a flap, so was more of a proper clutch.
