CLUTCH COMPANIONS

THE CLUTCH IS AN ACCESSORY THAT CAN HAPPILY BE CALLED ONE OF A WOMAN’S MOST VERSATILE TRAVEL COMPANION. AND WHILE SOME MIGHT LIKE IT BIG, IT IS THE TINY CLUTCH THAT HAS DRAWN ATTENTION TO ITSELF THIS SEASON.

Alexander McQueen, true to form, presents us with the most unusual interpretation in the shape of a shiny alien-egg like magic box that intrigues just as much as it conceals the few essentials it contains. Playing on its signature branding, Chanel manages to create clutch-renditions of its most famous No. 5 scent, needing nothing more than a single large and immediately recognisable cypher stitched onto the entirety of the bag to make a clear statement. Louis Vuitton also playfully mimics its trademark travel-trunk, morphed into a tiny pastel pink rendition incorporating the signature clasps and hinges. Going full on femininity, Dolce & Gabbana work with surface texture and embellishments to create small filigree handbags, accentuated with gold flower appliques and delicate chain straps. And finally, reworking the all black classic, Saint Laurent, Marni and Balmain present us with ingenious individual takes on the clutch that would match both stylish business as much as confident evening outfits.

So, just as you are getting ready for winter with its multitude of layers, you can delight in the joys of the miniscule clutch as a delightfully winter-weight-defying addition to your ensemble that adds definition and character in a myriad of ways.
