TRENDS | The Hand Clutch

AccessorizeSunny ShumComment

Hand clutches have taken a whole new form. From mini to over-sized and structured to floppy....There is no doubt that women are not afraid to express themselves through their clutches. For Spring/ Summer 2013 clutches of all shapes and sizes were sent down the runway, some functional and some not so functional. From leather to synthetic, plain and structured to ornamented and slouchy, clutches are being worn both in neutral colors and in brighter hues. Here’s some of my top picks:  

Snake details typically are sought after as Autumn trends but this Primary New York clutch done up in this stunning citrus orange screams summer, hello year of the Snake! $350, www.primaryny.com

If you can’t decide on color Proenza Schouler's duo-color clutch does the trick. Lemon yellow and silver is a fresh combination. Available at The Bay, $915.

Feel good and get a beautiful clutch at the same time. Clutches of Karma is a social enterprise and is involved with many programs in the Philippines (where the handbags are made). This Geometric Hard Case is a head turner, $400.

For your everyday casual life I’d go with a clutch that is unstructured. How much do I love Marie Turnor’s “ Dinner Bag”? A lot a lot a lot. It's like brown paper bagging it, brilliant. $250, www.marieturnor.com.

It wouldn't be like me not to recommend a sensibly priced clutch too. Casual weekends just got better with this supple milled leather Baggu clutch.  It's like a small coin purse, but just big enough to hold the important stuff. Made in the USA. $45 available at www.shutupilovethis.com
