inspiration | the transparent clutch

I am back. I have found a small amount of time to blog and I thought I could do an inspiration post since I haven't done them in a while. My love for all things lucite in interior design and decor, such as the Philippe Starck Ghost Chair have crossed over into the world of fashion. It has been a while since the transparent clutch has burst onto the scene but they have survived through several seasons and they are trendier than ever. Now I know they are not the most practical bags, especially for that time in the month, but they transparent details gives such an unexpected twist to such a classic accessory. This has definitely given me a push to try and make one of these myself, it doesn't seem too hard to make.




The likes of Charlotte Olympia, have done their own interpretation of the trend and have also added colour to them. Valentino has also done transparent bags as part of their Rockstud collection and if you are looking to take the next step, perhaps a transparent tote by BCBG Max Azria might be the one for you. I might have a go with trying to make a transparent clutch and check back in with the progress. Until then, follow me on my social media channels below!

    1. I love the coloured ones as well - Charlotte Olympia does some great ones. However, the problem would be trying to style it!

    1. I'm definitely in the same position - my bag is a nightmare but maybe they could force us to be organised :) Transparent clutches are definitely not the most practical bags in the world!
