Big is the new black apparently. Although the case of oversized clutches is not something brand new, as it has been spotted previously in S/S 12 collections, the fashion world is still thirsty about it.

No wonder if you ask me as I am a huge fan of the trend myself. High on my wish list is the extra minimal -want to have right now- Celine clutch. And I am also sure that fellow fashion freaks, like Evmorfia aka the Obsessions girl, agree with me. Or the croco Givenchy one -ok I have to stop now.
