    Default Maison Martin Margiela Leather Strip Clutch


    Thanks to Lady Gaga, Architectural fashion seems to be everywhere right now. Some of it is stunning, and some of it is just plain weird. I think most people would agree that everything Lady Gaga wears should be labeled as more of a fashion mess than stylish.

    I'm not a huge fan of architectural fashion but I have to admit that some of it is pretty cool and unique looking. When I came across the Maison Martin Margiela Leather "Strip" Clutch I was intrigued. It wasn't super crazy, but the leather bands that wrapped the body of the clutch caught my eye. I liked how the bands were going in all different directions, but it would of looked much better if more than one color was featured.

    The clutch looks pretty in one color, but if some of the leather bands were in a different color the clutch would be more effective. I can totally envision it having both white and black leather bands going in opposite directions of each other. Not only would another color have it look less dull, but it would make the clutch stick out a little more. Overall, it would make a cute, little bag to carry around day or night.

    You can purchase the Maison Martin Margiela Leather Strip Clutch at Saks Fifth Avenue for $500, which I think it absolutely ridiculous. It may be a cool bag to look at, but it's definitely not worth that price. It maybe made in Italy, but this clutch is worth no more than $100 in my book.

    See the Maison Martin Margiela Leather Strip Clutch at: Saks Fifth Avenue

    I like it, just I wish that it was a little bit bigger.

    Looks like recycled bandages or fabric piping....

    With all of the bandaged looks we've been seeing, it's fun to see it translated to a bag. Of course, I totally love that kind of detail as BV, KK fan!

    There's something that this bag reminds me of and I can't find a picture anywhere... a lawn chair with that same plastic like design.. does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm looking for an image right now.

    LOL That's funny Jennifer! I'd like to see the bag in person. If those stripes are not stitched down...that would be too weird!
