In the 1900s, the Soho Diary – named after London’s illustrious district – was a fundamental accessory where one could write in style while on the go. Now fast forward to 2014, Smythson of Bond Street has used the portable diary as an inspiration for their Autumn/Winter 2014 showcase accessory- the Soho Clutch. Every line, detail, and feature of the journal has been recreated into this clutch to highlight its timeless elegance whilst designed to be perfectly functional as an evening accessory. Even its original dimensions are replicated while gilded edges are engraved for a page-edge detail – it really had us fooled!
A beautifully embossed pale gold clasp pushes down to reveal a discreet interior that’s spacious enough to hold all your esssentials for a night out. The Soho Clutch is available in Panama lambskin in tones of metallic dark berry, bronze, and black, or in exotic textures like natural python and lizard skin in black, dark berry, and charcoal. We think it’s the perfect accessory from the British luxury leather specialist this season.
