The New York Times online style section recently reported on a quiet revolution that’s taking place in the world of fashion. Stylish women are unburdening their shoulders of gargantuan hobos and totes in favor of space saving, looks-great-tucked-under-the-arm clutch bags.
It’s no secret that we’ve always loved clutches, but many of them were only spacious enough to accommodate the bare essentials. Anyone who has ever tried to shove more than keys and lipgloss into their fave clutch before a night on the town knows exactly what I mean. So you can imagine how excited we are about the new super-size editions of our beloved bag that have been spotted on the streets of Paris and NYC. Finally! The functionality of our most treasured everyday bags meets the undeniable chic that is the clutch purse. And while you may not be able to haul your whole life around in them, at least your cell phone and iPod won’t have to battle it out for a place in your bag.
