Charlotte Olympia Reinvents the Clutch Bag
What more can I really say about these clutches? I mean, we remember as kids, there was a multitude of cute little bags we called our first purses, carrying around proudly as our mothers did (don’t you wish we didn’t wish we weren’t in such a hurry to grow up?)…many shaped like our favorite cartoon characters, animals, shapes, fruits, inanimate objects…you name it. Of course as adults we’re not allowed to be as whimsical and playful, right? Not. Screw that.
With that said, I bring you my favorite clutches and bags from a brand I just discovered – Charlotte Olympia. Actually check that…I just realized I HAD heard of this brand long ago, when I stumbled across the designer’s beautiful bat shoes (now sold out), which I immediately coveted. I love how her shoes are all branded with the pretty gold spider web under the sole! Charlotte Olympia began in 2008 in London, by designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal, and was initially a shoe brand, “inspired by a bygone era of old Hollywood glamour.”
Granted, these items are way, way beyond most of our price ranges, but we girls can dream, right? And even more than that, art is often to be admired, and doesn’t always have to be owned or touched. So with that said, check these out! Charlotte Olympia has a line of clutches that bring me back to those childhood years…whimsical clutches, bags and purses formed after items that spark those sweet memories of fun or innocent times. I adore them!
