The end of the clutch

they came in fur too!

"If Prada does it, everyone will afterwards" is a common saying around fashion people, and yesterday at the show for next spring we witnessed something new. Well not completely new, as nothing in fashion really is, but something we haven't seen for a long time. There were no clutch/ big envelope bags accessorising the clothes. You know the ones every cool girl has been photographed holding, even though sometimes they were so big you almost needed two hands to hold? But there were never handles. Lucky for us girls, Miuccia things we should have them back! I know I will be a fan as I am really tired of trying to hold my bag close under my armpit, while talking on the phone and holding a glass of wine. Now with the mini totes you can slide your hand through and it just hangs there giving you freedom of movement. So reminiscent of late 90's early 2000! Plus they are extra ladylike and cute as a little Barbie bag.

* If you check my post below you'll see Marc Jacobs did it too, so you can't go wrong with these two.

Bye bye simple two dimension piece of leather, hello "little hand held bags" as british Vogue described them.

p.s.: Check out the shoes too. So ugly and intriguing shape, but let Prada put a bow on it and some roses and now I've got to have them!!
