This season, clutches are either super-soft (like Clare Vivier’s) or hard as a rock (like Edie Parker’s). Maybe it’s because I’m personally prone to dropping them (when I’m totally sober – swear!) but I prefer the latter. These box clutches come in a variety of exteriors; Tom Ford’s is tortoiseshell, Lanvin’s is mother of pearl, and Edie’s is sparkly “geo” rock, so there is something for everyone. If you love yourself a good minaudière, this trend is for you.
