Over here at KB, us ladies can never have enough handbags. And that’s a fact. But when it comes to adding to our collection, we have pretty discerning taste. However, this Giselle Clutch by Jill Stuart definitely makes the cut.
New Yorker Jill Stuart has designed a lot of bags since launching her collection in 1993, so she knows what she’s doing. It’s no wonder then that this clutch mixes modern functionality with vintage whimsey and tough-girl black leather.
The chain fringe and buttery-soft leather are definitely very sexy, while the pendant-style tab and the zipper pocket at the back lend some tougher elements to an otherwise feminine clutch. What I really love about this clutch though is the metal rod hidden at the top of the clutch to act as a sturdy handle. I have carried, sorry, clutched, many a clutch in my time, and yet the thing I find most annoying about clutches, is that bigger ones are often very difficult to carry, unless you plan to have it under your arm all night. But Jill Stuart has fixed that problem with this saavy little handle, allowing you to show off the rest of the bag as you hold it as well.
The Jill Stuart Giselle Clutch regularly rings in at $395, however, you can cop yourself a bag over at Shopbop.com for just $276.50. Definitely, too hot not to cop!
