Clutches are the perfect designer accessory. These small, envelope-shaped bags without handles are the handbag of choice for celebrities and the rich and famous – especially when they attend fancy balls, fashion shows and other exclusive events. As a result, many designers have made the clutch a perennial feature of their fashion collections.
Due to its particular design, the clutch is usually carried in the hand. It’s a ruthlessly minimal purse; a clutch will only fit the barest of necessities. That might be the reason why designer clutches are often seen on the catwalk, while other bags are rarely modeled. In a way, no outfit can truly be complete without a clutch to go with it. They’re often the star of the show.
