Apparently, movie-themed clutches are a thing these days. Two of our favorite brands, Charlotte Olympia and Kate Spade, both have film-inspired bags out right now. And a few of the handbags are almost identical. Charlotte Olympia’s Movie Night embroidered leather shoulder bag ($495) is $137 more than Kate Spade’s Cinema City Popcorn Bag ($358), but otherwise, the bags are weirdly similar. If you don’t feel like carrying around a carton of fake popcorn (we personally prefer the real thing) you can opt for this Take Pandora Perspex clutch ($995). The Kate Spade version is technically an iPad sleeve ($50), but no one will know the difference. We prefer Olympia’s clapboard clutch because it actually snaps shut and you can run around screaming “Cut!” at people all night.
The handbags are cute, but we can’t image a grown woman using a bag shaped like a popcorn carton. Is there a demand for movie-themed clutches that we just didn’t know about? What do you think about the film inspired handbags?
