    Default Aspinal of London Manhattan Croc Clutch





    While I was searching for evening bags and clutches on the web, since I am totally in need of one, I came across a great brand of handbags and leather goods called Aspinal of London. On their website, I discoverd a perfect little beauty called the Manhattan Clutch. These purses are handmade and feature Italian calf embossed croc leather with a touch of patent shine. What is also amazing about these purses is the beautiful and detachable gold or silver chain (depending on which color you opt for) that comes with them. This allows you to either wear the bag over the shoulder for a more casual look, or carry it in your hand as a clutch for evening glamour. Also, they come with a little mirror that is coated with matching leather.

    These bags retail for $400, which is a little high in my opinion for a designer that realy isn't known (by me anyways). But since they look so gorgeous on the website, and also since I have been craving something colorful, exotic, and patent for evening wear, I think I'm going to give this bag a try. My personal fave is the deep purple because it will match with everything, and it's feminine and elegant. Lastly, a huge plus for me is the size, which measures 9"x 6.5"x 2.5", because I prefer smaller bags for when I hit the clubs or the bar and not a bigger evening bag like an oversized clutch, for example.

    I think it's cute, but I think for that's a bit much. you could find something similar for way cheaper.. it's just embossed leather.


    Here are a couple examples by other designers:
    LAPA Croco-embossed Mini Doctor Style Bag -- $438 (Purple + Lilac)
    Fontanelli Small Croc-embossed CLUTCH - $159
    LAPA cherry croc-embossed - $362

    ^the last one by LAPA is really cute. and it even comes with a shoulder strap! i wish there were more pics on the site though so i could see more details and stuff. and i wonder if the strap is leather? but that is a really good alternative to A of L. but i am still so drawn to that shade of purple, lol! thanks for posting Jen!
