Evening clutches possess an amazing potential to transform your ensemble completely. Brands like Anya Hindmarch, Charlotte Olympia and Dolce & Gabbana can be credited with making clutches more than just an accessory. From crystal-cloaked satin bags to inimitable silhouettes and wondrously-hued beauties, women’s clutches have become an irresistible element of party dressing.
Following are five evening bags and statement purses that shine, shimmer and sparkle, offering a drool-worthy look.
1. Nicholas Theil Apple Clutch
This apple-shaped minaudière is a piece of art. It has a sturdy leather construction enhanced with gold-tone metal and is detailed by a leaf motif at the top for an ideal replication.
2. Olympia Le Tan Alice In Wonderland Book Clutch
Having shared fame with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Natalie Portman, Olympia Le Tan’s book clutches are no novelty to fashionistas. This adorable canvas creation is adorned with a colourful embroidery illustrating Lewis Carroll’s celebrated novel, Alice in Wonderland. Its robust built and unique look make it a collector’s item.
3. Chanel Perfume Bottle Clutch
Chanel’s artistic approach is evidently expressed in this rather conspicuous Perfume Bottle clutch. A treasure from the label’s 2013 runway collection, the clutch is designed to imitate the iconic Chanel No.5 flacon. This stunner is made from black plexiglass with a CHANEL Paris logo nestled in the middle on a gold base and it flaunts the signature interwoven chain link. This beauty will be the ultimate statement maker.
4. Alexander McQueen Knuckle Clutch
Skulls are an iconic McQueen motif evident throughout his works, including the widely popular Knuckle clutches. This black leather piece is characterised by the signature knuckle handle featuring the recognisable skull and flower motifs that come ornamented with gleaming Swarovski crystals. Adorned with gold-tone studs all over, this head-turner can be slipped over your fingers making it as much a jewellery piece as it is a bag.
5. Valentino Va Va Voom Clutch
This refreshing rendition of the famed Valentino Va Va Voom clutch bag will tickle your fancy for bright hues and eye-catching designs. This bag is lavished with multicoloured bead embellishments that grace its beige leather exterior. You can double the chain link to wear it over your shoulder or carry it as a clutch using the signature Rockstud-trim slip handle.
Because these statement purses are filled with glitz and glam, we suggest you keep your outfit understated for a more balanced look. Shop them now and make heads turn at your next outing.
