Weird, colourful, cute, novelty clutches are quite popular these days.
Yes they do look a bit childish, but I think that adds to the whole idea of fashion being whimsical and fun. Plus I think it’s great to NOT take yourself too seriously.
These are some of my favourite clutches from around the web!
I love that these two bags by Patricia Chang are so cute, round, made from leather, look really well made and… they are a “sophisticated” dusty pink colour. They are not “12 year old hot pink” nor are they “screaming neon pink”.
Yes I know it’s a bit silly to call a pig and a donut “sophisticated” but you get what I mean right?
These two clutches are perspex 3D shapes, so they are chunky and probably not very practical. I can’t believe how cute the are.
I LOVE the robot one, but it’s soooo exxy!
Maybe I can get one of my sons to make me a robot out of LEGO and have him superglue it together??
I adore Poppy’s collection of clutches – they are so rock and roll, Japanese punk, sexy badass, colour-pop princess looking… Did that even make sense?
I like that they add a burst of colour to your outfit, while still being a good rectangular size to keep all your stuff.
OK so Charlotte Olympia came out with a whole stack of exotic clutches in a loose oriental theme. I love looking at them and tilting my head going “That’s so weird, but I kinda like it!”, but they are waaaay out of my price range.
Again, will my phone even fit in that?
These next four Skinnydip bags are probably the most affordable of the lot. And if you check out the models wearing them, you might just fall in love with them, as I have.
You can’t go wrong with a cute black cat purse.
Nor will you be able to avoid people coming up to you saying “I love your Christmas Tree bag! It’s so cool/weird/unique!”
I actually bought myself the Lips Clutch a few months ago (I wrote about it in this blog post) and I just love using it! Yep, it’s great for photos and a fun way to break the ice with strangers.
Finally, the weirdest of them all, the Ray Gun Zap bag is the quirkiest bag I’ve seen in ages! Don’t know whether to love or hate, but it certainly caught my attention and put a smile on my face!
