Francesco Biasia Happy Daisy Clutch
When I first came across this one, the term “designer-inspired” popped into my mind. Maybe it’s just me, but do certain details on this clutch resemble a specific designer? Like maybe Chanel? The few traits on this clutch that I’m referring to are the quilted upper flap and the interwoven leather and chain wrist strap. These somewhat resemble Chanel’s Classic Flap bags, which have been known years and years for having these same features. Though it’s no shock that other brands inevitably get inspired by high-end, classic, and stylish designers like Chanel.
At least Biasia didn’t attempt to completely recreate a Chanel piece. The shape of the clutch, pleats in the front, and golden slip lock closure are definitely all contrasts to Chanel’s feminine and elegantly innovative designs. So I think I give a little credit to FB for not making a bag that was heavily inspired. But would I wear this clutch? Well, I don’t think I’ll be reaching for my wallet to place an order anytime soon. Though honestly, I do like the overall design, and I think the golen hardware accents the leather very well. So if you are a fan of this one, let me mention a few more details for you: it comes with a 48.5 in shoulder strap that’s detachable, has a brocade lining with a leather bound mirror, and measures 10Â¾” at widest x 4Â½” tall at center x 2” deep.
