Hot Item: Envelope Clutch

Day or night, envelopes style you up!

By Mariannie Samara

This season, most of the designers presented glamorous clutches instead of bigger bags. Some of them went a little further, by showing envelope-like bags.

These beautiful items are inspired by paper envelopes and the way they are folded. Imitating the lines and cuts of real envelopes these clutches add luxury and sophistication to a rather simple outfit.

Some designers such as Dior, B&D, Delvaux, DKNY, Michael Kors and Oscar de la Renta created envelopes in classic white, black, red, camel and khaki made of high quality leathers.

Others like DVF, Givenchy, Judith Lieber, Marchesa and Anya Hindmarch caught the eye by creating more extravagant envelopes with fur or with gold and silver embellishments.

All in all, either small and square-shaped or oversized, envelopes surely are a touch of glam in your daily wear!
