HANDBAG OF THE MOMENT: Colorful Beirn Clutch

Not only is this one of my favorite bags, but it's one of WWD's favorite bags too. Two weeks ago on April 29th it was featured in an accessories story about exotic skins.

This is the perfect clutch is so many ways. It's a medium size that will never go out of style as clutches trend from mega to tiny. It's envelope construction is a classic that you will still like years from now. The exotic skin will immediately raise the bar of your evening outfit. 

When I worked with Beirn on this concept, it was an existing envelope clutch in the collection, but needed an update. Hence we created a multi skin and color effect for this clutch and the iconic Jenna hobo. It comes in two colorways: A Bright Multi and Tonal Neutral

Insider Trade Secret from a Handbag Designer: It is not necessary to always invent a new handbag shape every season for your collection. If you have a shape or some shapes that are really popular, offer them again, but in new colors. Just like redecorating a room in your house, a new paint color on the walls is all you need to revive it rather than starting from scratch. In this case, we took it a bit further than just one new color and created a patchwork effect that makes a common envelope clutch very special. www.jeneenaquin.com
