Hunting for a sleek and simple bag that holds all your barang-barang and is a total conversation starter? Look no further than the humble clutch bag, which has had many reincarnations over the years: it was Jacquemus-level microscopic in the ‘20s where flapper girls only needed to tote out cigarettes and a lipstick, boxy-like in the ‘40s when women really started to get out there, supersized to emulate a men’s portfolio in the ‘80s when women started having power lunches of their own and we’re now living in the era where you can have any size or design you please so long as you have the monetary means.
But in today’s context where women are constantly on the go, the best clutches look good and do good – they need to fit everything we need from day to night. Here are 10 top picks from the fun to the fabulous.
