Clutch Convert

For years I’ve been off clutches, but now I’m all-in. Tired of never knowing where to put my handbag in a restaurant and struggling to keep a shoulder strap on my shoulder when wearing a bulky parka are the main reasons I’m a convert. The clutch is everywhere. Even shoulder bags are worn under the arm and I saw a woman carrying her Birkin this way (it looked silly). The BV mini makes three and I’m on the lookout for an evening pouch. Tbc.

  • How about three in one!

    Chanel wallet on a chain. I wear it as a cross body purse…. double the chain for over the shoulder….chain inside for a classy evening clutch.
    It’s win win win

  • Preston, would love to hear your thoughts on the two sizes of the BV Pouch, and why you chose the size you did. Thank you!

  • The large was too big and even though the mini holds essentials only, I would carry it more often.

  • Love both of these but a question – where do you put a clutch in a restaurant? If you’re on a banquette, fine, but I can never figure out where to put a largish clutch if I’m sitting in a chair.

  • My lap or on the table.

  • Is the black clutch with the kiss lock closure also by Bottega?

  • The black is Celine

  • Can you tell me if the black one is currently for sale, and if yes do you know where as I cannot find it anywhere. Thanks.

  • It is from SS18 and is no longer in the Celine stores. Perhaps resale.
