This Season’s New Clutches

By Butterboom Writers  /  April 23, 2010

A chic alternative to bulkier shoulder and evening handbags for a night out.

With so many new shapes and designs to choose from, Butterboom has scanned through all that’s available in stores to bring you our top picks.

Clutches from the Spring/Summer collections seem to be designed as extensions of collections – ie spawned off key trends like tribal, bold bright graphics, structural shapes and underwear/as outerwear with lots of lace.

Expect to find clutches decorated with tassels, buckles, stone embellishments in exotic skins of all kinds from crocodile to snakeskin. Fashionable Spring/Summer colours like gold, black, silver, yellow, red and bronze feature strongly in the clutches we found.

While we’re bound to see at least one designer present some seasonal clutches, these days they have become such permanent staples in collections that they’ll never go out of fashion and, we must say, we’re glad!
